Abstract
The Centre for Operational Research and Analysis (CORA), which is a Defence Research & Development Canada (DRDC) research centre for systems analysis and operational research, is in the process of characterizing threat and investigating the feasibility of building a Department of National Defence and Canadian Armed Forces (DND/CAF)-specific cyber threat model. The aggregation of cyber threat intelligence information from a variety of reputable sources and the ability to act on this information are likely to be important aspects of the overall cyber threat model being developed.1 The current effort, entitled State-of-the-Art in Cyber Threat Models and Methodologies (CTM&M), is a research component of the Cyber Decision Making and Response (CDMR) project, which is under the Cyber Operations Science and Technology (S&T) Program. It will form the basis of a threat characterization framework, which will build on DRDC’s Military Activities and Cyber Effects (MACE) taxonomy to include behaviour-based tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs). DRDC will then develop a CAF cyber threat model that will be demonstrated on the ARMOUR platform. This approach to the DRDC threat initiatives is illustrated in Figure 1.
