In this paper, the authors reports on a trade study they performed to support the development of cyber ontology from initial malware ontology. The goals of the cyber ontology effort are first described, followed by a discussion of the ontology development methodology used. The main body of the paper then follows, which is a description of the potential ontologies and standards that could be utilized to extend the cyber ontology from its initially constrained malware focus. These resources include, in particular, cyber and malware standards, schemas, and terminologies that directly contributed to the initial malware ontology effort.
