ABSTRACT
In order to create secure and dependable systems and infor-
mation intelligence, it is a major challenge to determine the
security level of the network. This security level depends on
a number of dynamically changing factors including emerg-
ing of new vulnerabilities and threats, policy updates and
network traffic. An effective means to address this is to
identify security metrics that measure the quality of secu-
rity configuration objectively and dynamically.
In this extended abstract, we propose a comprehensive se-
curity metric framework called Risk based prOactive seCu-
rity cOnfiguration maNAger (ROCONA) that identifies and
