Threat Modeling

Project leads: Adam Shostack and #6
Scope: 2017
The goals of this project are to:

  • Model and categorize the ways data are collected (for example, government vs non-government, is there an opt-out, what does it cost?).
  • Create an inventory of things people do and ways data is gathered to form a set of building blocks, from which to do further analysis.
  • Get to a method, process, or tool that can be applied by different target groups with different threat models effectively and help us think about more holistic defenses.
  • Ultimately, to inform, influence, and identify areas for intervention.
