Abstract : Warfighting technologies and systems are being integrated and connected via the cyber domain at unprecedented rates. The cyber warfighting domain is permeating all areas of warfare, and the need to accurately assess the cybersecurity posture of systems has never been more prominent. This report identities key challenges facing the cyber assessment efforts across the science and technology, acquisition, and operational communities and presents a summary of the state of the art in cyber assessment technologies. Specific recommendations are given to balance the benefits of controlled experimentation in synthetic environments with the realism of operational exercises.
