Preliminary Threat Assessment

Functional Resilience, Functional Resonance and Threat Anticipation for Rapidly Developed Systems

ABSTRACT

Network-centric rapid-development teams focus on functionality: integrating Commercial off-the-Shelf (COTS) and Government off-the-Shelf (GOTS) technologies to meet specific goals for a compressed development schedule. In most cases, basic security will be implemented, but there is an assumption that the integrated COTS and GOTS systems are secure, despite the introduction of new development and integration into existing programs of record. Functional resilience for rapidly developed systems is rarely considered and can result in operational failure in real-world scenarios due to long recovery times following an adverse effect. Testing for functional resiliency prior to deployment will identify inherent or introduced vulnerabilities.
