1. Combinatorial Coverage Analysis of Subsets of the TLS Cipher Suite Registry
Published: 5/12/2016
Authors: David R Kuhn, Dimitris Simos, Kristoffer Kleine, Raghu N Kacker
Abstract: We present a combinatorial coverage measurement for (subsets) of the TLS cipher suite registries by analyzing the specified ciphers of IANA, ENISA, BSI, Mozilla and NSA Suite B. Our findings contribute towards the design of quality measures of recomm ...

2. Combinatorial Testing for Cybersecurity and Reliability
Series: ITL Bulletin
Report Number: May 2016
Published: 5/12/2016
Authors: David R Kuhn, Raghu N Kacker, Larry Feldman, Gregory A. Witte
Abstract: This bulletin focuses on NIST's combinatorial testing work. Combinatorial testing is a proven method for more effective software testing at lower cost. The key insight underlying combinatorial testing's effectiveness resulted from a series of studie ...

3. Extensible Access Control Markup Language (XACML) and Next Generation Access Control (NGAC)
Published: 3/11/2016
Authors: David F Ferraiolo, Ramaswamy Chandramouli, David R Kuhn, Chung Tong Hu
Abstract: Extensible Access Control Markup Language (XACML) and Next Generation Access Control (NGAC) are very different attribute based access control standards with similar goals and objectives. An objective of both is to provide a standardized way for expre ...

4. Learning Internet of Things Security "Hands-on"
Published: 2/3/2016
Authors: Angelos Stavrou, Constantinos Kolias, Jeffrey Mark Voas, Irena V Bojanova, David R Kuhn
Abstract: Our research began from asking whether there is a science behind the Internet of Things (IoT). We started from zero knowledge and no bias. The results of that work determined that indeed there is a science, but it is a science of numerous actors, tha ...

5. A Rational Foundation for Software Metrology
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 8101
Published: 1/20/2016
Authors: David W Flater, Paul E Black, Elizabeth Nee nee Fong, Raghu N Kacker, Vadim Okun, Stephen S Wood, David R Kuhn
Abstract: Much software research and practice involves ostensible measurements of software, yet little progress has been made on an SI-like metrological foundation for those measurements since the work of Gray, Hogan, et al. in 1996-2001. Given a physical ...

6. Measuring and Specifying Combinatorial Coverage of Test Input Configurations
Published: 11/14/2015
Authors: David R Kuhn, Raghu N Kacker, Yu Lei
Abstract: A key issue in testing is how many tests are needed for a required level of coverage or fault detection. Estimates are often based on error rates in initial testing, or on code coverage. For example, tests may be run until a desired level of statemen ...

7. Combinatorial Testing: Theory and Practice
Published: 8/18/2015
Authors: David R Kuhn, Renee Bryce, Feng Duan, Laleh Ghandehari, Yu Lei, Raghu N Kacker
Abstract: Combinatorial testing has rapidly gained favor among software testers in the past decade as improved algorithms have become available, and practical success has been demonstrated. This article reviews the theory and application of this method, focusi ...

8. Combinatorial Testing: Theory and Practice, Section 8.
Published: 8/18/2015
Authors: David R Kuhn, Renee Bryce, Feng Duan, Laleh Ghandehari, Yu Lei, Raghu N Kacker
Abstract: Additional Section to PUB ID 918448. Combinatorial testing has rapidly gained favor among software testers in the past decade as improved algorithms have become available, and practical success has been demonstrated. This article reviews the theor ...

9. Implementing and Managing Policy Rules in Attribute Based Access Control
Published: 8/13/2015
Authors: Chung Tong Hu, David F Ferraiolo, David R Kuhn, Raghu N Kacker, Yu Lei
Abstract: Attribute Based Access Control (ABAC) is a popular approach to enterprise-wide access control that provides flexibility suitable for today's dynamic distributed systems. ABAC controls access to objects by evaluating policy rules against the attribute ...

10. Introducing Combinatorial Testing in a Large Organization
Published: 4/23/2015
Authors: Jon Hagar, Thomas Wissink, David R Kuhn, Raghu N Kacker
Abstract: A two-year study of eight pilot projects to introduce combinatorial testing in a large aerospace corporation found that the new methods were practical, significantly lowered development costs, and improved test coverage by 20 to 50 percent.
