Kill Chain Analysis

Abstract

Reaction is a key strategic principle in an engaged defense. It is helpful to consider how intrusions and exfiltrations universally occur, breaking them down into phases where the adversary motivation is clearly defined and distinguishable. Breaking an attack into phases suggests that one is underway. An intrusion in progress is not necessarily one that is successful, and each phase of the intrusion provides a point at which a defense can be mounted. The kill chain is a time-tested military model that categorizes adversary incursion into a combination of fundamental phases, and these phases are described in this chapter.
