Visible to the public Science of Security Academic Survey


Many academic researchers are conducting research into cybersecurity topics. Collectively, their work promises the development of a systematic body of knowledge termed the Science of Security. The current Science of Security Academic Survey project consisted of three elements: first, we conducted a systematic survey of academic researchers in computer science, electrical and computer engineering, and mathematics, to determine whether they think that a Science of Security exists or is possible. Second, we conducted an open source literature review and environmental scan of current research in science of security topics and disciplines. Third, we developed a database which will become accessible by researchers to find current research in the Science of Security and to develop collaborations. Preliminary findings strongly indicate a belief that Science of Security has underlying scientific principals and is evolving into a true science.
