AbstractIn order to deal with APT(Advanced Persistent Threat) attacks, this paper proposes a quantifiable Attack-Defense Tree model. First, the model gives both attack and defense leaf node a variety of security attributes. And then quantifies the nodes through the analytic hierarchy process. Finally, it analyzes the impact of the defense measures on the attack behavior. Through the application of the model, we can see that the quantifiable Attack-Defense Tree model can well describe the impact of defense measures on attack behavior.
