Cyberspace is fundamental to our national prosperity, as it has become
critical to commerce, research, education, and government. Realizing
the benefits of this shared environment requires that we are able to
properly balance the risks and rewards, understand and communicate
threats to security and privacy, and rapidly adapt any resulting
approach to a changing adversarial environment.

Recognizing this, we seek original paper submissions in the following
general areas derived from the Federal Cybersecurity R&D agenda [1].

(1) Tailored Trustworthy Spaces - Provides flexible, adaptive,
distributed trust environments that can support functional and
policy requirements arising from a wide spectrum of activities in
the face of an evolving range of threats, recognizing the user's
context and evolves as the context evolves.

(2) Moving Target - Enables us to create, analyze, evaluate, and
deploy mechanisms and strategies that are diverse and that
continually shift and change over time to increase complexity and
cost for attackers, limit the exposure of vulnerabilities and
opportunities for attack, and increase system resiliency.

(3) Designed-In Security - Builds the capability to design, develop,
and evolve high-assurance, software-intensive systems predictably
and reliably while effectively managing risk, cost, schedule,
quality, and complexity.

(4) Cyber Economic Incentives - Develops effective incentives to make
cybersecurity ubiquitous, including incentives affecting
individuals and organizations.

(5) Science of Security [2] - Provides a more fruitful way to ground
research efforts, and to nurture and sustain progress.

Specific Topics of Interest
The following more specific topics are of special interest. Many of
these are also taken from the Federal Cybersecurity R&D agenda.

* Security and trustworthiness of information in motion and at rest,
especially in a shared (?cloud?) environment.
* Understanding the risks and tradeoffs in deploying solutions, in
terms that are measurable and quantifiable.
* Fusion of cyber data such as netflows with other data from non-cyber
sources, such as geographic and economic data to discover
connections and highlight activity of interest.
* Discovery of trends, especially in malware design and use.
* Trust negotiation tools and data models to support negotiation of
* Data protection tools, access control management, monitoring and
compliance verification mechanisms to allow for informed trust.
* Hardware mechanisms that support secure bootload and continuous
monitoring of critical software.
* Application and operating system elements that can provide strong
assurance that program semantics cannot be altered during execution.
* Control theory to abstract the complexity of moving target systems
and enable sound, resilient system management.
* Models and techniques to support on-the-fly evidence creation during
a systems engineering process.
* Mathematically sound techniques to support combination of models and
composition of results.
* Analysis techniques (based on model checking, abstract
interpretation, semantics-based testing, and/or verification) to
enable traceable linking among diverse models and code.
* Team and supply chain practices to facilitate composition of
assurance in the supply chain.
* Psychology and human factors for how to build software
specification, implementation, verification, analysis, and testing
tools that are easy to use and provide positive feedback to users.
* Methods to model adversaries; especially co-modeling of attackers
and defenders.
* Control theory for maintaining security in the presence of ongoing
and even partially successful attacks.
* Formal and stochastic modeling techniques in security modeling.
* Comprehensive, open, and anonymized data repositories.
