Web Enabled Information System Security Design and Operational Management (WISSDOM) is a web enabled service that allows the users to secure their enterprise information by following a security enginerring life cycle. The security engineering life cycle consists of four phases. 

Overview and Scope 

Aim of the project is to develop a robust and survivable Unified Formal Model of Enterprise Information System Security based on the existing and new models of different facets of security. The model and the theory behind it will be used to develop a set of easily measurable metrics for Management decision making and assurance of RoI.

Based on the above model and the metrics, a Web-enabled Object-oriented Framework for Enterprise Security Management will be developed along with a number of component services to be integrated with the Framework to automate different phases of the Security Engineering Life-cycle.

The scope of work will include the following:

1. Survey and integration of different models of the facets of Information Security into a unified formal model of Enterprise Information System Security.

2. Development of new metrics for risk, assurance, architectural efficacy, operational efficiency, protection capability, protection performance, etc.

3. Development of a Web-enabled Object-oriented Framework for Security Management consisting of the following components

(i) Security Requirement Analysis Component
(ii) Risk Analysis and Mitigation Component
(iii) Policy Development Component
(iv) Security Architecture and Infrastructure Advice Generation Component
(v) Operational Advice Generation Component
(vi) Security Testing Component
(vii) Web-based Training Component
