Title
(EN) DETERMINING APPLICATION ATTACK SURFACE FOR NETWORK APPLICATIONS
Abstract
(EN)

Systems, methods, and computer-readable media for attack surface score computation can include the following processes. An attack surface score service receives information identifying open ports associated with an application. The attack surface score service determines an attack surface score for the application based on the information and common attack ports. A policy engine determines whether to implement a policy for reducing vulnerability of the application to attacks to yield a determination. The policy engine implements a vulnerability reduction policy based on the determination.
