Cybersecurity: Think Globally, Act Locally

Dr. Peter FreemanNSF Assistant Director for CISE

agenda
Agenda
  • The Problem
  • National Initiatives
  • NSF’s Cyber Trust Initiative
  • Current activities
  • Plans
assumptions
Assumptions
  • Insufficient investment in cybersecurity by public and private bodies
  • Few top scholars and students in the field
  • Approaches to cybersecurity unchanged for decades
    • From Congressman Boehlert’s speech to ITAA, 3/27/2003
responses
Responses
  • A few academic and industrial efforts prior to 2001
  • The National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace
  • Cyber Security R&D Act of 2002
  • NSF’s Cyber Trust Initiative
cyber trust vision
Cyber Trust Vision

A society in which:

  • People can justifiably rely on computer-based systems to perform critical functions
    • national scale infrastructures: water, power, communication, transportation, ...
    • localized systems: cars, homes, ...
  • People can justifiably rely on systems processing sensitive information about them to conform to public policy
    • health, banking, libraries, e-commerce, government records

Without fear of sudden disruption by cyber attacks

background
Background
  • NSF has been funding basic research on IT security for many years (about $11M in 1999)
  • The need became more critical with the rapid growth in the use of the Internet
  • Vulnerability of these systems was highlighted by several disastrous attacks on the Internet and e-commerce in 1997-2000
  • Trusted systems program announced 9/05/2001
national cybersecurity needs aka cyber trust
National Cybersecurity Needs(aka Cyber Trust)
  • Awareness: inform the public and decision makers; general education
  • Make the current systems less vulnerable/more resilient
  • Increase supply of appropriate technical personnel
  • Provide for stronger future infrastructure
  • Change practice
nsf s cybertrust initiative
NSF’s CyberTrust Initiative
  • NSF’s coordinated effort for research and education in
  • Security
  • Reliability
  • Privacy, etc.
  • Essentially, all the attributes so that a computing, communication, or information system can be trusted.
implementation
Implementation
  • Research and education programs established:
    • Trusted Computing, FY ‘02
    • Data & Application Security, FY ‘03
    • Network Security, FY ‘03
    • Embedded and Hybrid Systems (Security of computing & control hardware), FY ‘02
  • ITR High Confidence Software & Systems component used for diversified modes of support for cybersecurity, FY ‘03
  • “Scholarship for Services” for traineeship, FY 01
planned actions
Planned Actions
  • Meeting of all relevant PI’s this summer (Aug 11-12)
  • Adding to research funds
  • Increasing dedicated internal resources
  • Exploring best means to integrate technical, policy, and management efforts (tent. Sept)
  • Exploring how to increase the supply of cybersecurity personnel (tent. Oct)
conclusions
Conclusions
  • Long-term research needed in addition to short-term fixes
  • Top scholars and students are being increasingly attracted to the field
  • Campus computing operations can be test-beds and early adopters
  • Local action by you is essential

National initiatives can only encourage and show the way; real progress can only be made locally.
