Science of Cyber Security
at ORAU Workforce Solutions

Date Posted: 12/23/2018

Opportunity Description

The goal of this research is to examine the issues underlying cyber security, devising novel theoretical constructs on which future cyber security advances will be based. Research is desired which will develop theories, models and understanding that will lead to more effective intrusion detection techniques, e.g., how data can be effectively visualized for decision makers and how existing information can be acquired and fused with the effect of engendering greater understanding of events. Some specific avenues of research being considered include (but are not limited to): Exploring models for the representation of cyber security, e.g., game theory Exploring ensemble techniques for improved detection with consideration of Byzantine General type attacks Considering forensics and anti-forensics in the context of cyber security both as a representational model as well as an analysis paradigm Considering behavior as a fundamental indicator in detection and analysis Acquiring improved network understanding with the goal of improving detection Developing novel detectors based on improved understanding to achieve low FP and FN This is an opportunity to have a significant impact on future cyber security research, do research with actual analysts in the network analysis domain, validate theories with ARL scientists, and test techniques on real-world data.

About Us

Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) administers Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) research participation programs for civilians such as:

The U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) Research Associateship Program (RAP) allow Postdoctoral Fellows, Journeyman Fellows (undergraduate and graduates students and recent graduates), Senior Researchers, and Summer Faculty engage in research initiatives of their own choice, that are compatible with the interests of the government and will potentially contribute to the general effort of the ARL. Scientists and engineers at ARL help shape and execute the Army's program for meeting the challenge of developing technologies that will support Army forces in meeting future operational needs.

Research opportunities include, but are not limited to the following disciplines: Aerospace Engineering, Anthropology, Archeology, Biology, Biochemistry, Biological Engineering, Biomechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Health Risk Assessment, Environmental Science, Entomology, Epidemiology, Ergonomics, Geology, Health Education Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science, Mathematics, Nanotechnology, Photonics, Physics, Public Health Economics, Public Health Policy, and more.
