The eight-member team from the University of Central Florida (UCF) was the 2014 winner of the Raytheon National Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition ( This competition is focused on the security tasks associated with administration and protection of an operational "commercial" network....
DARPA annouced the BAA (request for proposals) for their Brandies Initiative. Brandies is a privacy centered initiative that works on foundation privacy research. One aspect is developing methods for a consumer to choose and technology enforce their privacy choices or holders of their data. News:
To understand how cybersecurity academic programs are evolving, and in the process identify both challenges and emerging leading practices, IBM interviewed professors and department heads from 15 programs in six different countries. Study participants were selected from over 200 programs followed by the IBM Cyber Security...
The Symposium and Bootcamp on the Science of Security will be held April 21 and 22 at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Hot SoS is a research event centered on the Science of Security, which aims to address the fundamental problems of security in a principled manner. The 2015 Hot SoS event will bring together...

  • Abstract: The success of machine learning, particularly in supervised settings, has led to numerous attempts to apply it in adversarial settings such as spam and malware detection. The core challenge in this class of applications is that adversaries are not static data generators, but make a deliberate... more
  • Abstract: Stackelberg security game models and associated computational tools have seen deployment in a number of high- consequence security settings, such as LAX canine patrols and Federal Air Marshal Service. This deployment across essentially independent agencies raises a natural question: what global... more
  • Abstract: We investigate the coverage efficiency of a sensor network consisting of sensors with circular sensing footprints of different radii. The objective is to completely cover a region in an efficient manner through a controlled (or deterministic) deployment of such sensors. In particular, it is shown... more
