Research Institution
VASST seeks to secure large systems, overcoming challenges arising from size and scale, vulnerability analysis, and cyber and physical integration.It defines vulnerabilities at the component level and translates their effects up to the system level.It does this in a two stage process, with the first stage seeing the evaluation of cyber vulnerabilities to produce model effects which are in turn evaluated in models to produce validated first order system effects.These physical effects are then propagated through a Systems Security Engineering (SSE) Model to produce second and third order system effects and determine the mission level impacts.Approved for Public Release | 16-MDA-8695 (1 June 16)
