182. An Attack Graph Based Probabilistic Security Metric
Topic: Cybersecurity
Published: 7/21/2008
Authors: Lingyu Wang, Anoop Singhal
Abstract: In today's networked environments, protecting critical resources usually requires us to understand and measure the likelihood of multi-step attacks that combine different vulnerabilities for reaching the attack goal.  Such a measurement is n ...

185. Dynamic Routing and Congestion Control Through Random Assignment of Routes
Topic: Cybersecurity
Published: 7/15/2008
Authors: Fern Y Hunt, Vladimir V Marbukh
Abstract: We introduce an algorithm for maximizing utility through congestion control and random allocation of routes to users. The allocation is defined by a probability distribution whose degree of randomness as measured by its entropy, is controlled. We se ...

187. A Framework for Measuring the Vulnerability of Hosts
Topic: Cybersecurity
Published: 6/30/2008
Authors: Karen Ann Scarfone, Timothy Grance
Abstract: This paper proposes a framework for measuring the vulnerability of individual hosts based on current and historical operational data for vulnerabilities and attacks. Previous approaches have not been scalable because they relied on complex manually c ...

189. Can TCP Metastability Explain Cascading Failures and Justify Flow Admission Control in the Internet?
Topic: Cybersecurity
Published: 6/2/2008
Author: Vladimir V Marbukh
Abstract: This paper discusses implications of possible metastability of TCP-type fair bandwidth sharing under random flow arrivals/departures for understanding and defending the Internet against cascading failures.  Cascading failures can be viewed as a ...

190. Practical Combinatorial Testing: Beyond Pairwise
Topic: Cybersecurity
Published: 6/1/2008
Authors: David R Kuhn, Yu Lei, Raghu N Kacker
Abstract: With new algorithms and tools, developers can apply high-strength combinatorial testing to detect elusive failures that occur only when multiple components interact. In pairwise testing, all possible pairs of parameter values are covered by at least ...
