MulVAL: A logic-based enterprise network security analyzer

MulVAL stands for "Multi-host, multi-stage Vulnerability Analysis Language". It is a research tool for security practitioners and system administrators to better manage the configuration of an enterprise network such that the security risks are appropriately controlled. Our goal is to design technologies for building a security knowledge base which can be utilized by various automated tools to enhance the quality and reduce the costs of enterprise network security management.
