Abstract:

In the cyber domain, network defenders have traditionally been placed in a reactionary role. Before a defender can act they must wait for an attack to occur and identify the attack. This places the defender at a disadvantage in a cyber attack situation and it is certainly desirable that the defender out maneuver the attacker before the network has been compromised. The goal of this research is to determine the value of employing a recommender system as an attack predictor, and determine the best con guration of a recommender system for the cyber defense domain. The most important contribution of this research e ort is the use of recommender systems to generate an ordered list of cyber defense actions.
