1 Formulaing CyberSecuriy a Convex Opimizaion Problem Kyriako G. Vamvoudaki, João P. Hepanha, Richard A. Kemmerer, and Giovanni Vigna Univeriy of California, Sana Barbara Abrac. Miioncenric cyberecuriy analy require a complee overview and underanding of he ae of a miion and any poenial hrea o heir compleion. To faciliae hi, we propoe opimizaionbaed algorihm ha can be ued o predic in realime how an aacker may ry o compromie a cybermiion wih a limied amoun of reource, baed on a model ha ake ino accoun poenial damage o he miion and probabiliic uncerainy. Two differen opimizaion cheme are conidered: one where all he miion daa i known a priori o he aacker and anoher where yem idenificaion and a moving horizon opimizaion i ued o produce he eimae baed on hiorical daa. Our cheme are compared wih real aack carried our by human player in he 20 inernaional Capure The Flag (ictf) hacking compeiion. Keyword: CyberSecuriy, Convex Opimizaion, Syem Idenificaion, ictf Inroducion Guaraneeing he ecuriy of cybermiion i a complex, mulidimenional challenge ha demand a mulifaceed, raegic oluion. The erminology cybermiion refer o a e of compuer ranacion aimed a accomplihing a pecific purpoe or ak, uch a placing an online hopping order, ubmiing a paper o a conference hrough an online ubmiion yem, or prining a bank aemen a an ATM machine. Cybermiion ypically require a large number of compuer ervice, including encrypion ervice, auhenicaion erver, daabae engine, web erver. We are epecially inereed in cybermiion Thi maerial i baed upon work uppored by ARO MURI Gran number W9NF K. G. Vamvoudaki, and J. P. Hepanha are wih he Cener for Conrol, Dynamicalyem and Compuaion (CCDC), Univeriy of California, Sana Barbara, CA USA R. A. Kemmerer, and G. Vigna are wih he Compuer Securiy Lab, Univeriy of California, Sana Barbara, CA USA

Cybermiion are epecially vulnerable o aack becaue i may be poible o preven he miion compleion by compromiing ju one of he muliple ervice required by he miion, provided ha he righ ervice i compromied a he righ ime. Cybermiion are pervaive and can be found in rading, banking, power yem managemen, road raffic managemen, healhcare, online hopping, buineobuine ranacion, ec. The dirupion o cybermiion can hu reul in cyber or phyical conequence ha hreaen Naional and economic ecuriy, criical infrarucure, public healh, and welfare. Moreover, ealhy cyberaacker can lay a hidden foundaion for fuure exploiaion or aack, which hey can laer execue a a ime of greae advanage. Securing cyberpace require a layered ecuriy approach acro he public and privae ecor. In he cybermiion ecuriy domain, he ecuriy analy i inereed in making deciion baed on he poenial damage ha aack can inflic o he miion and alo on he probabiliy ha he poenial damage i realized. To focu heir aenion and coordinae defenive acion, ecuriy profeional mu be able o deermine which aack preen he bigge hrea and prioriize which ervice o defend, a problem ofen referred o a cyber iuaion awarene. Siuaion awarene [3] i a common feaure of many cyberecuriy oluion bu mo of hem are fragmened. In hi paper, we preen a model ha can be ued o predic how an aacker may ry o compromie a cybermiion wih a limied amoun of reource, baed on a model ha ake ino accoun poenial damage o he miion and probabiliic uncerainy. Thi approach followed here moivaed by he need o avoid flooding he ecuriy analy wih raw daa abou complex miion and deailed log from inruion deecion yem (IDS). Inead, an auomaed or emiauomaed yem hould proce hi daa and preen he analy wih highlevel informaion abou he compuer ervice ha are currenly mo crucial for miion compleion and hu mo likely o be he arge of aack, baed on he curren ae of he miion and i fuure expeced evoluion. To achieve hi we propoe a relaively general model o decribe he damage o a cybermiion caued by poenial aack. Thi model can be uilized in opimizaion cheme o dicover opimal policie o diribue aack reource over ime and over he differen compuer ervice relevan o he miion o a o maximize damage o he cyber miion. The model propoed, need miion parameer ha ypically vary wih ime according o complex dynamic, which are difficul o deermine in an analyic fahion. To avoid hi difficuly, we learn uch parameer uing yem idenificaion of loworder aepace model ha are ued o make predicion of he parameer evoluion for a reaonable fuure ime horizon.

We are in he proce of developing human ubjec experimen o demonrae he benefi of uing he predicion generaed by he mehodology propoed in hi paper, inead of earching hrough miion race and ecuriy log. The remainder of he paper i rucured a follow.

The mapping from aack reource o poenial damage i expreed by he o called poenial damage equaion ha we approximae by a linear map: x PD fp q a b, () where a P IR can be viewed a he zeroreource damage level, and b P IR he marginal damage per uni of aack reource.

The converion of money ino poin wa performed by uilizing daa capured from an exploied ervice. Therefore, fir a eam had o obain money by olving challenge, and hen he money had o be ranlaed ino poin by exploiing he vulnerabiliy in a ervice of anoher eam. Succeful converion of money o poin depended on a number of facor, calculaed ogeher a he rik funcion, which i decribed in deail below.
