DETER Team Travels to the Lion City to Work with International Partners

Terry Benzel and Goran Scuric  – DETER PI and DETER Partner Manager –  traveled to Singapore in early November to work with International DETER Partners at the Singapore National Cyber Lab (NCL) being developed by the National University of Singapore (NUS), under sponsorship of the Singapore National Research Foundation (NRF). The NCL is based on the DETERLab cyber security testbed.

Where in the World is Benzel? Brazil! To Collaborate in Cybersecurity & Privacy with Brazilian Ministry of Innovation, S&T

National Science Foundation and Department of Homeland Security organized a series of joint workshops on Cybersecurity and Privacy with the Brazilian Ministry of Innovation, Science and Technology. The first workshop was held December 3rd thru 4th in Brasilia, Brazil. There were approximately twenty US researchers, primarily from academia, and an equal number of Brazilian researchers from a variety of Brazilian universities and industry.

The second GREPSEC workshop was recently held in San Jose, California, May 16-17, at The Sainte Claire Hotel. The event was very successful and included forty students from thirty universities. The day-and-a-half workshop preceded the annual IEEE S&P (Security and Privacy) Symposium.

NIST Cyber-Physical Systems Testbed Workshop

This week NIST held a workshop on Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) testbeds. While the development of CPS testbeds is still in the early stages, this workshop was presented as an opportunity to bring a diverse spectrum of the CPS and testbed communities together, to talk about key capabilities that CPS testbeds should have and the design principles that make them possible.

Israel Visit to Establish New Cyber Ecosystem Capability

Several key members of the DETER Project team – myself (Terry Benzel), Steve Schwab, and Ted Faber – traveled to Israel to work with the Israeli National Cyber Bureau (INCB) under a bi-lateral agreement between the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the INCB. Additionally, we took with us two DeterLab 'power users' from our DETER community – Sandy Clark, University of Pennsylvania and Ryan Goodfellow, Washington State University – to be a part of this exciting opportunity. DHS was represented by Dr.

CSET 2012 Workshop Report

I attended the USENIX CSET Workshop last month. This was the 5th CSET workshop.  The papers this year represented testbed designs, usage and education.  We had two papers from the DETER team - "Beyond Disk Imaging for Preserving User State in Network Testbeds" by Jelena Mirkovic, Abdulla Alwabel and Ted Faber and "Analyzing Resiliency of the Smart Grid Communication Architectures under Cyber Attack" by  Anas AlMajali, Arun Viswanathan, and Clifford Neuman. You can see copies of them and the presentations below.
