IAI to continue development on the Advanced Network Security Metrics for OSD/Army Cyber Resilience and Asset Criticality Measurement in Mission Success

The U.S. Department of Defense utilizes the cyberspace to execute critical missions and military operations. The defense and resiliency of individuals and collective cyber assets must be measured to determine the susceptibility to attacks from adversaries and any difficulties in defending these important items. To address this and to achieve coordinated network defense and mission assurance in the cyberspace, IAI has been developing CREACT, an integrated framework for advanced network security and performance metrics. CREACT, or the Cyber REsilience and Asset CriTicality program, measures and evaluates the defense capabilities in large-scale dynamic enterprise networks. Extended attack graph models are utilized to understand network vulnerabilities, attack risks, and for mission impact assessments. Efficient logical mission models will be developed to represent complex mission modeling, asset mapping, and resource allocation. An integrated framework will be created for comprehensive cyber resilience, asset criticality, and mission assurance analysis. Key functionalities will be implemented into a preliminary software tool to help end-users effectively model a complex military mission, identify critical tasks and mission assets, evaluate and measure the potential impacts of cyber-attacks, and foster communications to ensure mission success in cyberspace. CREACT has a distributed, modular, and open architecture, providing real-time situational awareness in the cyberspace, with impact analysis capabilities, such as mission asset mapping and extended attack graphs.
