The Cyber Forces Interactions Terrain (Cyber-FIT) Simulation Framework is my thesis work at Carnegie Mellon University. It is an agent-based modeling approach to simulating cyber team performance. In my first paper published using Cyber-FIT, I use NetLogo to code the model and run virtual experiments to test out the conceptual framework. In the second paper I teamed with a research group from Temple University to add empirically observed adversarial behavior to the model, and force attacker agents to traverse the Cyber Kill Chain. In the third paper, I extended that work to create more in-depth kill chain virtual experiments. In the fourth paper, I added in computational cognitive model of cyber situational awareness. I'm currently re-coding the model in Java based Repast. The goal is to expand to more realistic numbers of network connected devices (1,000+), and more granular control of cyber teams, friendly forces, and adversaries - for more interesting virtual experiments.
