“Measuring and Assessing the Cybersecurity Risk of Support Equipment to Complex Systems,” Christopher Guerra

This presentation will describe a methodology to measure and assess the cybersecurity risk of a complex system or a fleet of complex systems in response to the support equipment footprint, which interfaces with the system. This approach combines information from two key sources: the system architecture and the support equipment interface and characteristics. We use these data to model the risk to aircraft resulting from vulnerabilities in the support equipment.

4:00 p.m.-4:30 p.m., Riverview 1, Track 2D1: Factory and Development Test
“VICTORY: A New Approach to Automated Vehicle Testing,” Travis Thompson

The development of and adherence to open, well-defined, and accepted standards for military vehicles is key to an automated testing capability. Leveraging modular, open-system architectures and standard specifications like VICTORY for automated vehicle testing provides the opportunity for reduced system interconnect complexity, increased testing capabilities, and the possibility for more meaningful, tightly coupled, data-rich test results. VICTORY provides the framework for building generalized test sets, offering the opportunity to share a standard in-vehicle network environment upon which different applications can tailor specific test solutions.
