Abstract
Cyber assets usually support missions with different priorities, and the objective and systematic measurement of their resilience and criticality may play a major role in mission success. One basic requirement for achieving mission success and mitigating the adverse impact of advanced threats is to measure the defense and resilience effectiveness of individual and collective cyber assets. Therefore, a comprehensive framework of metrics should be developed objectively and systematically for measuring the individual and collaborative resilience and mission criticality of cyber assets by taking mission assurance into consideration in wired and wireless networks. This framework should be modular in nature to account for the impact of different types of advanced threats and vulnerabilities, be reactive to network connectivity failures and new threats, and provide the commander with a status of metrics of interest on resilience and mission assurance.
