Title: Generating Attack Graph Models from Community Drive Ontology Libraries

Abstract:

This talk will present the ADversary VIew Security Evaluation (ADVISE) modeling formalism, which is used to create an attack graph model of a cyber-physical system. Coupling the attack graph with an adversary profile, the model is evaluated using discrete event simulation to calculate values for user-defined metrics. This approach has been used to make cyber-physical system design choices and understand the security and performance impact of those decisions. This talk will also discuss the next evolution of this work, which generates the attack graph from a UML-like system diagram through the use of community-driven ontology definitions.
