Intention awareness in cyber security
Howard N., Kanareykin S.
The problem of designing cyber-security systems and policies that adapt as quickly as their attackers do is becoming increasingly important as the world becomes more network-centric and dependent on technology. This paper proposes a new approach to this problem. Namely, it argues that there exists a significant conceptual overlap between theories of military command and control and those of information security. Specifically, the latter lends itself to the study of intentions as the basis for a proactive analytical approach that will provide a more intuitive interface between automated activity and human oversight as well as superior predictive analysis. © 2012 IEEE.
