In todaypsilas large complex organizational network, security administration is a challenging task. The typical means by which an attacker breaks into a network is through a series of exploits, where each exploit in the series satisfies the pre-condition for subsequent exploits and makes a causal relationship among them. Such a series of exploit is called attack path and the set of all possible attack paths form an attack graph. However, the generated attack graphs by various previous approaches become too complicated to visually interpret and comprehend. Hence the proposed approach addresses the scalability issue of the attack graph generation through a generic attack path detection algorithm. This will reduce the generation of redundancy in attack graph, thus facilitating security management of an enterprise network.
