In this work, we propose a novel quantitative security metric, VEA-bility, which measures the desirability of different network configurations. An administrator can then use the VEA-bility scores of different configurations to configure a secure network. Based on our findings, we conclude that the VEA-bility can be used to accurately estimate the comparative desirability of a specific network configuration. This information can then be used to explore alternate possible configurations and allows an administrator to select one among the given options. These tools are important to network administrators as they strive to provide secure, yet functional, network configurations.
