Cybersecurity Dynamics is new concept that aims to achieve the modeling, analysis, quantification, and management of cybersecurity from a holistic perspective, rather than from a building-blocks perspective. It is centered at modeling and analyzing the attack-defense interactions in cyberspace, which cause a "natural" phenomenon -- the evolution of the global cybersecurity state. In this Chapter, we systematically introduce and review the Cybersecurity Dynamics foundation for the Science of
