Abstract

This work proposes the development and application of specific security metrics for metropolitan broadband access networks that aim to measure the efficiency of security programs and support action planning against detected problems. The approach presented in this work show metrics developed for these networks and parameters for metrics definition. This paper also presents results achieved from application of the metrics reported here in the metropolitan broadband access network of Pedreira, a city located in São Paulo, Brazil.
