Title: Establishing Tap Reliability in Expert Witness Testimony: Using Scenarios to Identify Calibration Needs

Abstract

In this paper we expand work initially described in calibrating low-level network taps, where we used examples of how one might establish the degree of soundness for network data gathering devices, using low-level tap calibration as our example. Our approach in this paper is adapted from Weismann's Flaw Hypothesis Methodology for penetration testing design, and extends the earlier work by considering a broader range of typical misuse and attack scenarios, again with respect to lower layer network devices.
