The cyber threat model technical reports for the NGCI Apex program explored the use of the general threat modeling framework for the financial services sector from an institution-centric view. The System-of-Systems Threat Model expands the perspective to a multi-institution or sector-level view, taking into consideration institutional links to partners, suppliers, and customers. This technical report describes system-of-systems environment and threat characteristics, identifies ways in which a system-of-systems threat scenario could be used, and demonstrates the potential utility of the general threat modeling framework by providing an initial system-of-systems scenario.
