Tuva Hassel Stang, Fahimeh Pourbayat, Mark Burgess, Geoffrey Canright, Åsmund Weltzien, and Kenth Engø, Oslo University College


Archipelago is system analysis and visualization tool which implements several methods of automated resource and security analysis for human-computer networks; this includes physical networks, social networks, knowledge networks and networks of clues in a forensic analysis. Access control, intrusions and social engineering can be discussed in the framework of graphical and information theoretical relationships. Groups of users and shared objects, such as files or conversations, provide communications channels for the spread of both authorized and un-authorized information. We present a Java based analysis tool that evaluates numerical criteria for the security of such systems and implements algorithms for finding the vulnerable points.
