Visible to the public Advancing Research in Security Science: Science of Security Effort


The Science of Security project entails support to inventory, catalog and disseminate research efforts currently underway at the nation's universities and to determine how that research relates to the development and maturation of the science of cybersecurity. The purpose of the project is to identify promising fields and determine how they relate to the creation of a broad scientific body of knowledge and the development of basic precepts in this new field. This poster demonstration will show the project's work to date, including opportunities available to researchers, current bibliography, and other items of interest collated for periodic highlights on the Science of Security Virtual Organization web site.
