Todays computers, network systems, and their defenses change slowly and deliberately. Consequently, they are easily reverse engineered and exploited by attackers. In response, Moving Target Defenses, and more generally Adaptive Cyber Defenses ACD, have been attracting considerable research attention for their ability to minimize attacker leverage of information obtained from system probes and open documentation. This project supported travel and other related expenses for two workshops on the quantification of Moving Target Defenses MTD. While there has been considerable interest in this area from US Government organizations, FFRDCs and academia, most current research efforts have been working independently of each other. The workshops objective was to create a community of MTD quantification researchers to share ongoing technical approaches, synthesize the advantages and disadvantages, and identify the most promising future research directions. The two workshops were held at George Mason University on August 31-September 1, 2015 first workshop and June 28, 2016 second workshop. There were over 40 workshop participants.
