MITRE Releases Defensive CyberSecurity Techniques In Its ATT&CK Site.

Good News!! MITRE Corporation releases the new project for defensive cybersecurity techniques named “D3FEND” in its ATT&CK Framework Site with the funding from NSA.

“D3FEND is a knowledge base, but more specifically a knowledge graph, of cybersecurity countermeasure techniques. In the simplest sense, it is a catalog of defensive cybersecurity techniques and their relationships to offensive/adversary techniques. “

“The primary goal of the initial D3FEND release is to help standardize the vocabulary used to describe defensive cybersecurity technology functionality”. stated in the published page.

While the D3FEND is for multiple audiences like Incident analyst, Security engineers, etc, D3FEND can also be used as a good starting point for different cyber security defense in a granular level.

The most interesting part in D3FEND project is that it is also categorized into five different CyberSecurity defense techniques such as:

  1. Harden,
  2. Detect,
  3. Isolate,
  4. Deceive and,
  5. Evict.

“D3FEND is at an early stage and is an experimental research project. The initial release is not considered comprehensive, and the defensive to offensive technique mappings (which are inferentially generated) are fundamentally generalizations.” reads the published page.
