Science of Security (SoS) Initiative details the progress of the activity in the SoS Annual Report 2015 recently published. The National Security Agency (NSA) Research Directorate sponsors the Science of Security (SoS) initiative for the promotion of a foundational cybersecurity science that is needed to mature the...
Carnegie Mellon University hosted HotSoS 2016, the Symposium and Bootcamp on the Science of Security, on April 19-21 in Pittsburgh, PA. Researchers from multiple academic fields came together for presentations demonstrating methodical, rigorous, scientific approaches to identify, prevent, and remove cyber threats. A major...
A year has past by since ISEF 2015 in Pittsburgh PA and now I am in Phoenix AZ for ISEF 2016. This trip will be bigger and better than last year. I have taken about two dozen ideas I had last time and applied them to this trip. Having experience will make it even better. This time I am lead judge for the National Security...

Workshop on Science of Security through Software-Defined Networking (SoSSDN) June 16-17, 2016 Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, IL Keynote by Anita Nikolich, Program Manager, NSF Software-defined networking (SDN) is an emerging networking paradigm that promises to convey huge benefits -- from reducing the...
On the first day of IEEE Security and Privacy, Elissa Redmiles from the University of Maryland Lablet, presented her paper she wote with fellow University of Maryland researchers Amelia Malone, and Michelle Mazurek. The paper was a study on how people choose what security advice they follow or not. They did a comparision...

  • Abstract: SDN's logically centralized control provides an insertion point for programming the network. While it is generally agreed that higherlevel abstractions are needed to make that programming easy, there is little consensus on what are the "right" abstractions. Indeed, as SDN moves beyond its initial... more
  • Abstract: The emerging software-defined networking (SDN) technology decouples the control plane from the data plane in a computer network with open and standardized interfaces, and hence opens up the network designers' options and ability to innovate. The wide adoption of SDN in industry has motivated the... more
  • Abstract: This paper focuses on the optimal sensor placement problem for the identification of pipe failure locations in large-scale urban water systems. The problem involves selecting the minimum number of sensors such that every pipe failure can be uniquely localized. This problem can be viewed as a... more
