Secure Adaptive Response Potential (SARP): A System Security Metric

Presented at INCOSE 2008

Joseph J. Simpson and Dr. Cihan H. Dagli

Abstract. System design, development and operational activities are monitored and evaluated to facilitate proper system security management in all phases of the system life-cycle. Effective system security metrics must address all phases of the system life-cycle as well as the associated organizational elements that interact during the system life-cycle to produce and operate the system of interest. A single system security metric, built from multiple components, is presented here as a fundamental system management security metric. This single technical security metric is used to support and evaluate the allocation of corporate and program resources, including time and budget.
