In this work we start walking the path to a new perspective for viewing cyber warfare scenarios, by introducing conceptual tools (a formal model) to evaluate the costs of an attack, to describe the theater of operations, targets, missions, actions, plans and assets involved in cyber warfare attacks. We also describe two applications of this model: autonomous planning leading to automated penetration tests, and attack simulations, allowing a system administrator to evaluate the vulnerabilities of his network.
