The growth in the size of networks and the number of vulnerabilities is increasingly challenging to manage network security. Especially, difficult to manage are multi-step attacks which are attacks using one or more vulnerabilities as stepping stones. Attack graphs are widely used for analyzing multi-step attacks. However, since these graphs had large sizes, it was too expensive to work with. In this paper, we propose a mechanism to manage attack graphs using a divide and conquer approach. To… CONTINUE READING
