Sophisticated cybersecurity systems excel at finding "bad apples" in computer networks, but they lack the computing power to identify the threats directly.
Topic: Cyber Decision Making
The ability for commanders to know and understand an organizational attack surface, its vulnerabilities, and associated risks is a fundamental aspect of command decision-making. In the cyberspace domain, ongoing monitoring sufficient to ensure and assure effectiveness of security controls related to systems, networks, and cyberspace, by assessing security
Machine learning for network intrusion detection is an area of ongoing and active research (see references in  for a representative selection), however nearly all results in this area are empirical in nature, and despite the significant amount of work that has been performed in this area, very few such systems have received nearly the widespread support
Abstract: For military networks and systems, the cyber domain is ever-increasingly contested and congested space. Defenders of these systems must fight through adversary action in complex tactical and strategic environments. Just now completing its third year, the Cyber-Security Collaborative Research Alliance has sought to develop approaches for
We are delivering the theory, processes, methodologies, and algorithms that will enable a resilient cyber infrastructure with an asymmetric advantage to thwart adversaries who seek to infiltrate and damage our national security through digital means. The ARC resilience concept is built on a modification of the Observe-Orient-Decide-Act (OODA) loop that is
The US Air Force’s Rome Laboratory is the USAF research and development center for command, control, and communications and is responsible for planning and executing the USAF science and technology program. The Information Directorate develops information technologies for air, space and ground systems, partnering with other federal agencies, allied nations,
In this article, I summarize Air Force Models and Simulations (M&S) policy initiatives and M&S enhancements for decision support analytics for warfighters and acquisitions. The policy initiatives include implementing an M&S governance structure, instantiating a study governance oversight, and evaluating the analytic capability across the Air
