Gondwana: Towards Quantitative Security Metrics
Dr. John McHugh
IT networks and systems are at the core of modern societies whether this is from either the direct
economic reliance or social safety perspectives. As a society, we have become reliant on the effective
operation of these networks and the information systems they support. Defending against malicious
activities targeted against these systems is the main thrust of computer security research and practice.
This research attempts to provide a basis for measuring how well these defensive measures work and to
develop measurement techniques that can be validated in practice.
