Paradox through MITRE ATT&CK

©2015-2021, The MITRE Corporation MITRE ATT&CK and ATT&CK are registered trademarks of The MITRE Corporation.


The MITRE ATT&CK framework provides an approach to assessing the contribution of security technologies such as Paradox within broader architectures.

Paradox is a security-focused operating system developed in collaboration with UK Government to meet the growing need for robust endpoint protection against elevated cyber threat. Paradox is designed specifically for providing secure access to cloud and online services, and as a light-weight operating system is able to support a number of security features that would be difficult or impossible to implement for a general-purpose operating system.

Initially deployed within government classified environments, the functionality and security features of Paradox have broader relevance across the critical national infrastructure (CNI). However, assessing the relevance of Paradox for security architects within the CNI can be a challenge without a commonly accepted framework. The increasingly referenced MITRE ATT&CK framework provides an approach to assessing the potential contribution of security technologies within broader architectures. MITRE ATT&CK is a knowledge base of techniques that are used by adversaries through the common stages of a compromise, providing information relevant to both penetration testers and defenders for understanding the nature of how adversary techniques typically work.
