Pub_Crawl_web.jpgPub Crawl summarizes, by hard problems, sets of publications that have been peer reviewed and presented at SoS conferences or referenced in current work. The topics are chosen for their usefulness for current researchers. Select the topic name to view the corresponding list of publications. Submissions and suggestions are welcome.

Named Data Networking 2020 (all)

Named Data Networking (NDN) is one of five research projects funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation under its Future Internet Architecture Program. Its goal is to make it easier to develop, manage, secure, and use networks and the Internet. For the Science of Security community, these efforts are relevant to the hard problems of resilience, human behavior, and scalability.

Natural Language Processing 2020 (all)

Natural language processing research focuses on developing efficient algorithms to process texts and to make their information accessible to computer applications. Texts can contain information with different complexities ranging from simple word or token-based representations to rich hierarchical syntactic representations, to high-level logical representations across document collections. For the Science of Security community, this work is relevant to scalability, resilience, and human behavior.

Nearest Neighbor Search 2020 (all)

The search for secure privacy protecting nearest neighbor searches is an issue in cybersecurity related to the Science of Security community hard problems of measurement and predictive metrics.

Network Accountability 2020 (all)

The term "accountability" suggests that an entity should be held responsible for its own specific actions. Once an event has transpired, the events that took place need to be traceable so that the causes can be determined afterwards. The goal of network accountability research is to provide accountability within networks and computers by building trace files of events. For the Science of Security community, it is relevant to composability, resilience, and metrics.

Network Coding 2020 (all)

Network coding methods are used to improve a network's throughput, efficiency and scalability. It can also be a method for dealing with attacks and eavesdropping. For the Science of Security community, research into network coding is relevant to the general network problems associated with the hard problems of resiliency, composability, and predictive metrics, as well as cyber physical systems.

Network Intrusion Detection 2020 (all)

Network intrusion detection is one of the chronic problems in cybersecurity. The growth of cellular and ad hoc networks has increased the threat and risks and research into this area of concern reflects its importance. For the Science of Security community, NID is relevant to metrics, composability, and resilience.

Network Reconnaissance 2020 (all)

The capacity to survey, analyze and assess a network is a critical aspect of developing resilient systems. The work cited here addresses multiple methods and approaches to network reconnaissance. These are related to the Science of Security hard problems of resilience and scalability.

Science of Security 2019 (all)

Many more articles and research studies are appearing with "Science of Security" as a keyword. The articles cited here discuss the degree to which security is a science and various issues surrounding its development, ranging from basic approach to essential elements. The articles cited here address the fundamental concepts of the Science of Security.

  1. - Scalability and Composability: Develop methods to enable the construction of secure systems with known security properties from components with known security properties, without a requirement to fully re-analyze the constituent components.
  2. - Policy-Governed Secure Collaboration: Develop methods to express and enforce normative requirements and policies for handling data with differing usage needs and among users in different authority domains.
  3. - Security Metrics Driven Evaluation, Design, Development, and Deployment: Develop security metrics and models capable of predicting whether or confirming that a given cyber system preserves a given set of security properties (deterministically or probabilistically), in a given context.
  4. - Resilient Architectures: Develop means to design and analyze system architectures that deliver required service in the face of compromised components.
  5. - Understanding and Accounting for Human Behavior: Develop models of human behavior (of both users and adversaries) that enable the design, modeling, and analysis of systems with specified security properties.
