[Recommended Reading] Turing Test

Source: Turing Test Wikipedia

“The Turing test, developed by Alan Turing in 1950, is a test of a machine’s ability to exhibit intelligent behavior equivalent to, or indistinguishable from, that of a human. Turing proposed that a human evaluator would judge natural language conversations between a human and a machine designed to generate human-like responses. The evaluator would be aware that one of the two partners in conversation is a machine, and all participants would be separated from one another. The conversation would be limited to a text-only channel such as a computer keyboard and screen so the result would not depend on the machine’s ability to render words as speech. If the evaluator cannot reliably tell the machine from the human, the machine is said to have passed the test. The test results do not depend on the ability to give correct answers to questions, only how closely one’s answers resemble those a human would give. Read more…”

[Recommended Reading] Factor analysis of information risk

Source: Factor analysis of information risk

“Factor analysis of information risk (FAIR) is an ontology of the factors that contribute to risk and how they affect each other. It is primarily concerned with establishing accurate probabilities for the frequency and magnitude of data loss events. It is not a methodology for performing an enterprise (or individual) risk assessment.” Read more…

[Recommended Reading] DREAD (risk assessment model)

Source: DREAD (Risk Assessment Model)

DREAD is part of a system for risk-assessing computer security threats previously used at Microsoft and currently used by OpenStack and many other corporations. It provides a mnemonic for risk rating security threats using five categories.

The categories are:

  • Damage – how bad would an attack be?
  • Reproducibility – how easy is it to reproduce the attack?
  • Exploitability – how much work is it to launch the attack?
  • Affected users – how many people will be impacted?
  • Discoverability – how easy is it to discover the threat?
