|Title:||Research Directions in Security Metrics|
|Published:||April 04, 2011|
|Abstract:||More than 100 years ago, Lord Kelvin observed that measurement is vital to deep knowledge and understanding in physical science. During the last few decades, researchers have made various attempts to develop measures and systems of measurement for computer security with varying degrees of success. This paper provides an overview of the security metrics area and looks at possible avenues of research that could be pursued to advance the state of the art.|
