Visible to the public Biologically Inspired Software Defenses

Abstract:

Today's software monoculture creates asymmetric threats. An attacker needs to find only one way in, while defenders need to guard a lot of ground. Adversaries can fully debug and perfect their attacks on their own computers, exactly replicating the environment that they will later be targeting.

Visible to the public View Consistency in Architectures for Cyber-Physical Systems

Abstract:

Current methods for modeling, analysis, and design of cyber-physical systems lack a unifying framework due to the complexity and heterogeneity of the constituent elements and their interactions. Our approach is to define relationships between system models at the architectural level, which captures the structural interdependencies and some semantic interdependencies between representations without attempting to comprehend all of the details of any particular modeling formalism.
