In software metrics, developers increasingly focus on counting bugs at code level are no of vulnerabilities encountered at system level generally but the authors focus on surface attack as a measure to differentiate a version of two compareable systems to justify which is better than other. They measure a system's attack surface in terms of three kinds of resources used in attacks on the system. The attack surface metric is validated by conducting a user survey. Their measure can be used as a parameter by software developers in the development process and consumers in their decision making process.
