Security Measurements and Metrics for Networks

Dependability Metrics (Lecture Notes in Computer Science 4909, Advanced Lectures), pages 157-165, 2005


Abstract

This chapter surveys research in two areas of security metrics: The first area is the field of malicious network traffic. The measurements made there are used to estimate the “health” of a network. The second area is the field of intrusion detection systems. These measurements can be taken as indicators on the quality of the system, i.e., its assurance to reliably detect intrusions.
