Army alliance to explore cyber science

The U.S. Army Research Laboratory has established a Collaborative Research Alliance to explore the basic foundations of cyber science issues in the context of Army networks. The alliance – made up of ARL, U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center, academia and industry researchers – gives the members “an opportunity to jointly advance the theoretical foundations of a science of cybersecurity in the context of Army networks,” said Dr. Ananthram Swami, who was recently announced as the Collaborative Alliance Manager, ARL, for the cybersecurity CRA.

ARL said it will research three interrelated aspects of cybersecurity and will add perspective on the human element of the network – the attackers, the defenders and the end users:

  • Risk Research will develop theories and models for dynamic risk assessment and explore risk-related properties of dynamic cyber threats, Army networks and defensive mechanisms.
  • Detection Research should shape cyber threat detection and recognition capabilities as new cyber threats emerge on the battlefield, he said.
  • Agility Research will support planning and control of cyber maneuvers, which help adjust networks and defenses to defeat or mitigate cyber threats.
