Abstract:

Common Cyber Environment Representation CCER is an ontology for describing operationally relevant, and technically representative, cyber range event environments. Thirdparty ontology developers as well as inhouse ontology developers contributed to CCER Ontology. Since the cyber range environments continue to evolve and expand, we expect the CCER Ontology also to evolve and expand. Therefore, an easy to comprehend versioning scheme that will support a systematic ontology evolution is needed. This document describes the requirements for such a versioning scheme, and its design. This document also describes how to assign version numbers under different ontology evolution situations, and provides guidelines for evaluating the impact of the version changes.
