It is technically challenging to conduct a security analysis of a dynamic network, due to the lack of methods and techniques to capture different security postures as the network changes.

In this talk, we discuss the challenges and address them in three primary goals: (1) develop an adaptable graphical security model to capture changes in dynamic networks, (2) develop new security metrics that can effectively represent the security posture of dynamic networks, and (3) develop optimal security hardening selection methods for dynamic networks taking into account multiple objectives and constraints.
