Abstract

In the context of ensuring the security of information in specific conditions, a number of difficulties arise due to the fact that the selected properties of information are heterogeneous and not commensurate, the areas of acceptable values of characteristics and properties of protection are not defined, which are derived from what is protected and directly depend on the properties the information itself, which in turn are set by the owner of the information. Moreover, it is of interest for the purpose of determining the value of protection, the definition of quantitative indicators of the properties of protection.

Information security metrics in appropriate methodologies that are based on verification and risk-orientation approaches are not sufficiently informative, since they take into account only objective aspects of security, completely ignoring subjective ones. They do not allow to make sound judgments about the state of confidentiality, integrity and accessibility of information and the level of information security of the organization as a whole. In this regard, the authors propose an approach to determine the numerical value of a generalized indicator of the value of information on the basis of the logico-linguistic model of evaluating the properties that characterize this indicator and the method of pairwise comparisons used to determine the numerical values of the coefficients of importance of these properties.

In this paper, we propose an approach for solving the task regarding the quantitative assessment of heterogeneous properties of information and the coefficients of their significance in the interests of information protection and to determine the influence of information properties that are set by the owner of the information security system on a generalized indicator of the value of information. At the same time, for the estimation of the numerical values of the considered properties of information, it is proposed to use the apparatus of the theory of fuzzy sets, and the determination of the corresponding coefficients of importance is carried out by the method of analysis of Saati hierarchies.
