With enough computing power and time, an attacker can figure out a password or secret key. This talk addresses modeling the behavior of the attacker and the defender in order to analyze the evolution of cyber-attacks. Chen will introduce an approach that can help cyber-security managers optimize their defense strategies. The analysis provides mathematical proofs and insight into when access controls (such as passwords, internet protocol addresses, and session keys) should be reset to minimize the probability of a successful attack.
