Abstract:

This document is a revision of the IOVSA methodology formalized in June 2000. The goal of this revised document will be the clarification of the work to be performed for each phase, the requirements, and the expected deliverables. Since this revision will be a living document, it will be updated as appropriate to include lessons learned. The intent of this revision is to facilitate the dialog between the U.S. Army Research LaboratorySurvivability Lethality Analysis Directorate ARLSLAD and the decision-makers program Executive Offices PEOs, Program Managers PMs, evaluators, contractors, etc. for U.S. Army IT-based systems. As before, the IOVSA process will provide a structured methodology for assessing IT systemSystem of Systems SoS 10 susceptibilities and vulnerabilities. The process will provide flexibility that enables the analyst to customize it for the systemSoS under assessment. Additionally, the IOVSA results will provide critical information to system developers and decision-makers regarding the systemsSoS 10 susceptibilities and vulnerabilities. Furthermore, enough information will be able to be extracted from the process to evaluate different countermeasure techniques and protection recommendations to determine their feasibility and costreward ratio.
