Abstract

Cyber defenders need automation tools that are intuitive, trustworthy, non-intrusive, and reusable. The Behavior-extracting Autonomous Resiliency Toolkit (BART) is such a tool. Its architecture combines existing results and AI techniques including workflow learning, mutli-agent frameworks, knowledge representation, and inference. A user study demonstrates that BART significantly shortens the required time to execute a cyber defense. The study also revealed three types of errors that an automated tool such as BART could prevent: typographical/syntax, procedural, and “hidden.” We also describe an emerging application of BART.
