Abstract:

A fundamental challenge for modern Battle ManagementCommand, Control, and Communications BMC3 systems is to withstand attacks against their constituent computer and communication subsystems. However, measures to safeguard or respond to a cyber attack against a BMC3 system, invariably disrupt the processing flow within that system. Thus disruptions may ultimately affect mission effectiveness, and a prudent strategy is to predict those impacts before committing to a specific response or safeguard. The objective of this work is to develop reliable methods for generating cyber Courses of Action cyber-COAs in near-real time.
