Securing the U.S. Defense Information Infrastructure: A Proposed Approach

By Robert H. Anderson; Phillip M. Feldman Scott et al. | Go to book overview

Chapter Six
DISTRIBUTION OF RESEARCH EFFORT

If the potential of the security techniques identified in Chapter Four is to be realized, further research will be necessary—if for no other reason than to keep pace with the vulnerabilities of the evolving in/ formation infrastructure. A comprehensive, accurate assessment of research needs would require a comparison of the state of the art in each of our security technique categories with that category's poten/ tial and the likelihood that future research would help make up the difference. That is a research project in itself. We believe, however, that we can take a first step and draw some suggestive inferences by simply determining the evenness with which a sample of recent re/ search projects are distributed across the security technique cate/ gories.1


APPROACH

We examined relevant research funded by two key U.S. government agencies: The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and the National Security Agency (NSA). These agencies were cho/ sen because of their tradition of funding “leading edge” computer security research; their agendas are thus a good indicator of trends in research focus. This is not a representative sample but it does constitute a substantial fraction of the publicly funded research in this area.

For our sampling of research projects, we limited ourselves to the 11 technologically oriented security technique categories shown in Table 6.1 and Figure 6.1, plus a cate/ gory for other/miscellaneous.
