Ed Mancebo, Anneliese Andrews
2005 Proceedings of the 2005 ACM symposium on Applied computing - SAC '05  
This paper presents a systematic method for simultaneously defining a software architecture and selecting off-the-shelf components for reuse.  ...  The method builds upon existing techniques for component selection and architecture evaluation.  ...  The presence of this choice is fundamental to the selection of multiple components.  ...

Research on Defensive Strategy Selection in Network Security

Hong Li
2017 International Journal of Security and Its Applications  
To assess the network information system and comprehensively show attack and defense strategies and theirs cost, a defense graph model is proposed.  ...  Defense graph will be mapped to the attack and defense game model, in order to provide a basis for active defense policy decision. What's more, a generation algorithm of defense graph is proposed.  ...  For single attack, the defense decision needs choose a strategy which realizes the minimum defense cost; for multi-step and multiple attacks, some defending strategy is workable for one attack action but  ...
