Abstract: 

The foundations for a new concept in cyber security, called Cyber
Identity or Cy-dentity, are discussed. The concept would combine
provenance, network security, and access management in a process that
would secure cyber and critical infrastructure networks through
high-precision identity attribution. Such a holistic approach would have
two immediate benefits or advantages: first, it complements or
supplements traditional protection-focused cyber security measures, such
as those being investigated in most research efforts, with additional
methods for securing cyber infrastructures and, second, it expands
current notions of data provenance to include all aspects of digital
authenticity, thereby ensuring a broad application space. More
importantly, the concept offers a method for measuring, quantifying, and
expressing the relative security of cyber infrastructures. An expression
for a so-called testable cybersecurity metric is also proposed, which
incorporates a measure for the relative value of the information
contained in a network. Such a metric allows the security of any cyber
infrastructure to be either determined experimentally or set through
policy.
