This project involves the application of argumentation techniques for reasoning about policies, and security decisions in particular. Specifically, we are producing a security-enhanced argumentation framework that (a) provides not only inferences to draw but also actions to take; (b) considers multiparty argumentation; (c) measures the mass of evidence on both attacking and supporting arguments in order to derive a defensible conclusion with confidence; and (d) develops suitable critical questions as the basis for argumentation. The end result would be a tool that helps system administrators and other stakeholders capture and reason about their rationales as a way of ensuring that they make sound decisions regarding policies.
