Abstract
SC2RAM ( Simulated Cognitive Cyber Red-team Attacker Model) is a cyber red-team-in-a-box that enables proactive response to cyber-attacks by developing a deeper understanding of the cognitive behavior of the players in the cyber-ecology (attackers, users, and defenders), embedding this understanding in a computational model, and translating it to tools that can help detect and respond to unfolding attacks. SC2RAM can be used to test a system configuration, train Information Assurance staff, and develop configurations for defensive automation systems. The SC2RAM team combines SoarTech"s world-class cognitive modeling platform and experience with IHMC"s recognized leadership in understanding the human and cognitive side of cyber-defense, and has already begun assembling a transition team, including the Michigan Cyber Range, AFRL"s Human Effectiveness Directorate, and TIBCO, a commercial software tools vendor.
