This Government Accounting Office (GAO)1 highly lauded Department of the Air Force (USAF) Systems Security Engineering Cyber Guidebook (SSECG) implements Cybersecurity and Cyber Resiliency policies and standards for all USAF Space and Weapon Systems, their Mission Essential and Supporting Systems, and Defense Business Systems (DBS). Space and Weapon Systems are assumed to be Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) hereafter. The SSECG provides a single source for guidance on Systems Security Engineering (SSE) within the USAF space and weapons system acquisition community. It is intended to assist Program Offices in performing the System Engineering (SE) and System Security Engineering (SSE)analyses needed to understand the Cyber Engineering aspects of their Space and Weapon Systems, and Defense Business Systems. It encompasses a holistic look at different aspects of SSE (e.g., Cybersecurity, Trusted Systems and Networks, Anti-Tamper, Information Protection and Cyber Resiliency), and outlines a single workflow process to integrate Program Protection (PP) and SSE activities into traditional SE processes with the goal of helping program offices in designing and verifying that Space and Weapon Systems and DBS that are more Cyber Resilient and Cyber Survivable, not just Cyber Secure
