Moving Target Defense techniques have been proposed to increase uncertainty and apparent complexity for attackers. When more than one Moving Target Defense techniques are effective to limit opportunities of an attack, it is required to compare these techniques and select the best defense choice. In this paper, we propose a three-layer model to evaluate and compare effectiveness of different Moving Target De- fenses. This model is designed as an attempt to fill a gap among existing evaluation methods and works as a systematic framework for Moving Target Defense comparison.
