Title: Survivability in Cyberspace

Abstract: The seemingly endless breadth of cyberspace coupled with the technological
depth of its composition can divide defensive approaches to be either
overarching or highly specific. In order to abstract away details for the
purpose of tractability, overarching approaches can suffer because
simplistic models for threats, vulnerabilities, and exploits tend to yield
defenses that are too optimistic. Approaches that deal with specific
threats, vulnerabilities and exploits may be more credible but can quickly
lose their meaningfulness as technology changes. Whether approaches are near
or far term, there are two underlying attributes that remain essential: the
ability to survive and the ability to fight through.
