Defending IaaS with ATT&CK
Defending IaaS with ATT&CK developed an ATT&CK matrix that enables users to easily understand and work with the techniques applicable to Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) environments, regardless of whether the attacks target the cloud management layer, the container technology, or the hosted infrastructure. The project also developed documentation and tools to simplify creating overlays for other domains like Industrial Control Systems (ICS) or Operational Technology (OT).
