Purpose

The PhysicalZone object is representing a location where Systems are physically accessible. Having physical access to a system, in turn, allows for an additional set of attack steps that in turn affect all Application objects that are connected to the System object.

Connections

When a System is connected to a PhysicalZone object, several additional attack steps to that System is made available to the Attacker.
