Abstract:

This project developed a software tool NP-View that analyzes the configuration files of firewalls and routers to determine the connectivity that is permitted, and identify connections that violate global policy. It uses the discovered connectivity as a basis for computing metrics that address the degree to which the network is resilient to stepping-stone attacks. Features of the tool were strongly influenced by the results of pilot studies we performed with potential users.
