Abstract: This proposed task provides the support for a community meeting by the Federal agencies, whose mission is to advance the science and technology of cyber security, with leading experts and researchers in academia, industry, and government at the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center, National Harbor, Maryland. This meeting will focus on recent progress in developing the scientific foundation for the design and analysis of trusted systems. Over 150 leaders from government, industry, and the academic community met to discuss new and ongoing programs in security science being pursued by U.S. government research sponsors, and an exciting new Cybersecurity Research Institute recently established in the U.K. The presentations included work in a broad range of disciplines including mathematics, computer science, behavioral science, economics, physics, and biology. The meeting introduced a new Science of Security Virtual Organization website designed to promote research collaboration and community development. NSA's Director of Research concluded the meeting with the announcement of a Cybersecurity Science Paper Competition.
