Abstract:

The Software Engineering Institute SEI annually undertakes several independent research and development IRAD projects. IRAD funds are used in two ways 1 to support feasibility studies investigating whether further work by the SEI would be of potential benefit, and 2 to support further exploratory work to determine whether there is sufficient value in eventually funding the feasibility study work as an SEI initiative. It is anticipated that each year there will be three or four feasibility studies and that one or two of these studies will be further funded to lay the foundation for the work possibly becoming an initiative. Projects are chosen based on their potential to mature andor transition software engineering practices, develop information that will help in deciding whether further work is worth funding, and set new directions for SEI work. This report describes the IRAD projects that were conducted during fiscal year 2010 October 2009 through September 2010. The FY 2010 research projects are as follows Trusted Computing in Extreme Adversarial Environments -- Using Trusted Hardware as a Foundation for Cyber Security Communicating the Benefits of Architecting within Agile Development Multi-Perspective Reliability Modeling and Analysis for Cyber-Physical Systems Achieving Predictable Performance in Multi-Core Embedded Real-Time Systems Automatic Generation of Hidden Markov Models for the Detection of Polymorphic and Metamorphic Malware Advanced Technology for Test and Evaluation TE of Embedded System Functionality and Security and An Investigation into the Feasibility of Tactical SOA.
