This dissertation presents a framework of concepts (CSAIF) for integrating management tasks in information security. CSAIF is a compound framework comprised of risk analysis, security planning, validation and improvement, and evaluation methodologies. These methodologies are intended to enable information security administrators and evaluators to easily maintain lifecycle security in a proactive manner. The research resulted in useful methodologies, models, and tools, such as determination of risk propagation and validation methods applied to security designs, evaluation of operational and newly designed security solutions, realistic worm/virus spread and extinction models, and design of a secure protocol used for security assesssments over the Internet and public networks.

As presented in a collection of publications, there are several contributions of CSAIF: primarily, it offers the development of efficient, scalable, and easily applicable methods for self-risk assessment, improved security design, and guidance for lifecycle security maintenance. It also provides complementary functions that can be used by test and evaluation facilities and institutions. The CSAIF framework builds on a compound (interrelated) concept, which contains security threat analysis, worm modeling, new approaches for quantitative risk management, design validation (assessment and improvement), and a remote security evaluation protocol called RSEP. It also provides guidelines and specifications that can be used to improve existing solutions and to develop assessment tools.

The thesis is based on a collection of research work published by the doctoral candidate, while involved in various information security projects internationally, mostly in Turkey.
