DASH Models Built in Dartmouth Student Projects

Recently, Professor Sean Smith at Dartmouth College taught a course on 'Usable Authentication and Authorization in the Real World'. The course included a class on DASH, our agent platform for simulating human behavior as it relates to cyber-security. Several groups of students elected to build DASH models for their class projects and built models of behavior related to password and login name selection as well as acceptance of SSL certificates. We are grateful to Sean and his research assistant Vijay Kothari who assisted with installation at Dartmouth and with example DASH models.

We look forward to developing some of these models further and making them available to others through the integration of DASH on DETER. For more details about DASH, please contact blythe@isi.edu.
