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.

Industrial Control Systems 2022 (all)

Industrial control systems are a vital part of the critical infrastructure. Anomaly detection in these systems is requirement to successfully build resilient and scalable systems. The work cited here addresses these two hard problems in the Science of Security.

Information Centric Networks 2022 (all)

The move from host-centric to information-centric network security has major implications for the Science of Security community relative to scalability and resilience.

Information Forensics 2022 (all)

Forensics is an important tool for tracking and evaluating past attacks and using the information gained to resolve hard problems in the Science of Security related to resilience, metrics, human behavior, and scalability.

Information Reuse and Security 2022 (all)

The objective of information reuse is to maximize the value of information by creating simple, rich, and reusable knowledge representations and integrating it into systems and applications. With reuse comes inherent security risk. For the Science of Security community, this problem is relevant to compositionality and resiliency.

Information Theoretic Security 2022 (all)

A cryptosystem is said to be information-theoretically secure if its security derives purely from information theory and cannot be broken even when the adversary has unlimited computing power. For example, the one-time pad is an information-theoretically secure cryptosystem proven by Claude Shannon, inventor of information theory, to be secure. Information-theoretically secure cryptosystems are often used for the most sensitive communications such as diplomatic cables and high-level military communications, because of the great efforts enemy governments expend toward breaking them. Because of this importance, methods, theory and practice in information theory security also remains high. It is fundamentally related to the concept of Science of Security and all the hard problems.

Insider Threat 2022 (all)

Insider threats are a difficult problem. The research cited here looks at both intentional and accidental threats, including the effects of social engineering, and methods of identifying potential threats. For the Science of Security, insider threat relates to human behavior, as well as metrics, policy-based governance, and resilience.

Intellectual Property Security 2022 (all)

Intellectual Property protection continues to be a matter of major research interest. The topic is related to the Science of Security regarding resilience, policy-based governance, and composability.

Intelligent Data and Security 2022 (all)

The term "intelligent data" refers to data that directly feeds decision-making processes. It has real time critical importance and therefore needs a high degree of integrity. For the Science of Security community, it is important to the Hard Problems of resilience, scalability, and compositionality.

Internet of Vehicles Security 2022 (all)

The term "Internet of Vehicles" refers to a system of the Internet of Things related to automobiles and other vehicles. It may include Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANETs). For the Science of Security community, it is important relative to cyber physical systems, resilience, human factors and metrics.

Internet-scale Computing Security 2022 (all)

Addressing security at Internet scale relates to all of the Hard Problems of the Science of Security.

Machine Learning 2022 (all)

Machine learning offers potential efficiencies and is an important tool in data mining. However, the "learned" or derived data must maintain integrity. Machine learning can also be used to identify threats and attacks. Research in this field relates to the Science of Security hard problems of resilient architectures, composability, and privacy.

Malware Analysis 2022 (all)

Malware analysis, along with detection and classification, is a major issue cybersecurity. For the Science of Security community, malware classification is related to privacy, predictive metrics, human behavior and resiliency.

Malware Analysis and Graph Theory 2022 (all)

Malware analysis is generally signature based. Graph theory has the potential to provide more rigor in analyzing malware as a tool for mining large data sets. For the Science of Security community, malware classification is related to privacy, predictive metrics, human behavior and resiliency.
