Abstract:

The Systems Engineering Research Center SERC has developed a novel cybersecurity concept for embedding security solutions into systems called System-Aware Cybersecurity. The overall goal of the System-Aware program is to develop low cost methods of protection against cyber exploits by our adversaries. Development of a prototype security system for securely monitoring an autonomous surveillance system on board an unmanned aerial vehicle for possible cyber attacks using reconfiguring systems for Sentinel-based architecture. Exploring decision support methodologies for determining on a mission basis the most critical system functions to secure employing attack tree tools and SysMLUML tools. Developing cyber security CONOPS for operation of UAVs that are possibly under attack. Exploring the opportunity to apply private Cloud capabilities as a Sentinel for monitoring ground-based systems so as be able to readily employ moving target and diversity solutions to secure the Sentinel and to monitor Cloud performance as a means for detecting possible cyber attacks. The major deliverables of the project were prototype-based and simulation experiments that result in enhanced understanding of requirements for cyber defense of systems and design patterns that can be reused across multiple system types.
