Abstract
This paper documents research into extensions to the Multihost, Multistage Vulnerability Analysis (MulVAL) framework to support DRDC efforts to develop a feasible abstraction in the area of defensive posture technology. The results presented in this paper demonstrate that the MulVAL model is extensible and can be enhanced to include additional data representation and analysis features to tailor the model to meet the need of the DND defence community. The extensions evaluated in this effort have been shown to be both technically valid given the capabilities of logic-based programming and appropriate given the current model data representations. The primary extensions researched as part of this work are: improved representation of network path constructs and assignment of value to data assets in the model. This paper documents a substantial degree of progress in the development of each of the proposed MulVAL extensions.
