Abstract:

Cyber moving target techniques involve randomizing cyber system components to reduce the likelihood of successful attacks, adding dynamics to a system to shorten attack lifetime, and diversifying otherwise homogeneous collections of systems to limit attack damage. A review of five dominant categories of cyber moving target techniques assesses their benefits and weaknesses.
