Unified Architecture Framework Profile-Systems Engineering Method for Security Architectures

  • Speaker: Mary Tolbert - MITRE and Tamara Valinoto & Madeline Zimmerman - Northrop Grumman Mission Systems
  • When: Day 1 : Sunday May 21st
  • This session will introduce a modeling method for the development of a Unified Architecture Framework Profile (UAFP) model with a focus on System Security Engineering. Successful Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) implementation that includes security considerations allow for early risk identification and system performance anomalies prior to implementation. "Baking-in", rather than "bolting-on", a system's security architecture early in the design phase allows for the early detection of a system’s threats and vulnerabilities through definition and usage of the security control type as defined in UAFP. Capturing the security architecture in a system model allows for traceability from logical constructs to the physical defense mechanisms to be implemented for early identification of potential threats and vulnerabilities in the system design. The UAFP-Systems Engineering Method (UAFP-SEM) is defined using the Software & Systems Process Engineering Meta-Model Specification (SPEM) 2.0 plugin to CAMEO EA®. SPEM supports the definition of method content such as work product definitions, role definitions, task definitions and process workflows.
