Abstract

The threat to our nation’s infrastructure and intellectual property is substantial. There have been numerous examples of specific attacks and potentials, especially in light of the stuxnet exploit. Adaptive and resilient solutions have to be developed, but how can we visualize and model potential solutions? The Fan™ provides a framework to develop and visualize cyber defensive architectures.
