The Cyber System Assessments Group provides the U.S. Government with independent assessments of cyber systems and capabilities. This is accomplished through the research and development of unique, cutting edge technical capabilities for understanding, testing, assessing and analyzing cyber technologies. In addition to the principal mission of planning, constructing, supporting and executing testing and evaluation activities of cyber capabilities, the Group also focuses on red-teaming to identify weaknesses in U.S. systems and characterization of adversary capabilities. The Group achieves success through excellence and experience in core technical competencies, including the planning and execution of cyber evaluations, development of realistic, high-fidelity test environments to model the Internet and networks of interest, modeling of adversary capabilities, development of threat surrogates, low-level systems analysis for vulnerability discovery and malicious software analysis, low-observable system instrumentation and forensic analysis, and reverse engineering.
