Model Driven Software Security Architecture of Systems-of-Systems


Recently, there is a growing interest in Systems of Systems (SoS), their architecture, security and application domains. However, their specific characteristics such as the operational independence of SoS constituent systems (CS), the absence of central authority and their emergent behavior make the modeling of their structure, behavior and security a complex task. One of the current main security challenges in the context of SoS is the cascading attack problem. The challenge is to predict the concatenation/sequence of CS's vulnerabilities that could be triggered resulting in destructive cascading failures and take corrective actions to reduce the cost, development time and effect of later changes. In this paper, we propose a domain specific modeling language (DSML) to represent SoS security rchitecture. Having SoS security models will enable the discovery, analysis and resolution of cascading attacks, in the architecture phase, preventing development time and cost wastage. Following a Model Driven Engineering (MDE) approach, we generate a graphical editor for our DSML and use it to model a Smart Campus case study. \textcopyright 2016 IEEE.
