"Efficient Cybersecurity" by Greg Shannon
Monday, February 19, 3:00 p.m. 480 Dreese Labs
The  Federal Cybersecurity Research and Development Strategic Plan , released by the White House two years ago this month, states that “The fundamental research challenge is to make cybersecurity less onerous while providing more-effective defenses.” And, that the long-term R&D goal is the “effective and efficient deterrence of malicious cyber activities via denial of results and likely attribution.” The current state of the practice in cybersecurity focuses on better informing the defender in order to thwart adversaries, and we explore the practical challenges of using unsupervised learning to detect malicious cyber activities. However, a more efficient approach is to deter adversaries by having then experience infrastructure that is frustratingly hard to exploit and hard to create significant cyber effects therein. We present a framework for developing efficient cybersecurity that will thwart  and  deter adversaries.
