An Algorithm for Constructing and Searching Spaces of Alternative Hypotheses

In this paper, we develop techniques for automated hypothesis-space exploration over data sets that may contain contradictions. To do so, we make use of the equivalence between two formulations:...

An Evaluation of Visual and Textual Network Analysis Tools

User testing is an integral component of user-centered design, but has only rarely been applied to visualization for cyber security applications. This article presents the results of a comparative...

Query Processing for Probabilistic State Diagrams Describing Multiple Robot Navigation in an Indoor Environment

This paper describes the syntax and semantics of multi-level state diagrams to support probabilistic behavior of cooperating robots. The techniques are presented to analyze these diagrams by querying...

The Cyber and Information Security Research (CISR) Group conduct cutting-edge research in cyber warfare, situational understanding, visual analytics, secure communications, sensing and signal analytics to defend the nation’s critical infrastructures against attacks from known and future adversaries, understand the threat to provide real-time actionable intelligence from diverse data, secure the supply chain and critical infrastructure, enable continuing operational capabilities, and defeat known and future adversaries.

Event

13th Annual Cyber and Information Security Research (CISR) Conference

April 3 - 5, 2018

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.

The 13th Annual Cyber and Information Security Research Conference at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Oak Ridge, Tennessee will bring together cyber security researchers, program managers, decision makers, security vendors, and practitioners to discuss many challenging tasks and novel solutions pertaining to cyber security.
