Abstract : A cost-benefit analysis is made of potential countermeasures (CM's) to increase the survivability of Defense Communications System (DCS) sites to an attack by saboteurs. The objectives of the security system and augmenting CM's are examined, the threat is outlined, and attack deterrents are specified. The estimated times to sabotage potential targets are tabulated. An attacker-defender interaction model and measures of effectiveness of potential CM's are defined. The requirements of the security system and its elements are described considering different levels of system sophistication. The estimated unit costs of these potential elements are tabulated. The user responsibility is to balance an acceptable level of protection against an acceptable level of expenditures for protection. (Author)
