Center members are conducting longitudinal studies on the growth, potential for abuse, and countermeasures in “open” wireless computing using the IEEE 802.11 standards. These studies follow trends in the spread and use of wireless primarily in metropolitan areas.
Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition
Research is being performed in areas including (1) development of unique exercises in SCADA security, especially for managers, (2) creation of SCADA security laboratories, and (3) the use of compression for improving encryption throughput.
The Daubert case - 509 U.S. 579 (1993) - and subsequent cases expanding its holdings propose that one test of whether expert testimony is admissible is whether error rates are known or can potentially be known. The Information resources Management College is engaged in research to determine error rates of digital forensic tools by calculating Type I and Type II errors for analytic results using the tools on disks with known forensically relevant contents.
Roles, Responsibilities and Procedures for Protection and Defense of Combined Critical Information Infrastructure (completed)
Researchers: Major Christer Kjellkvist (Swedish Air Force) and Anthony M. Bargar (US Department of Defense).
Research Chair: Daniel Kuehl, PhD (Information Resources Management College, National Defense University).
Research Advisors: Henrick Friman, PhD (Swedish National Defense College), Irving Lachow, PhD (Information Resources Management College, National Defense University), Robert Miller, PhD (Information Resources Management College, National Defense University), Daniel Ryan, JD (Information Resources Management College, National Defense University).
This research explored Combined Critical Information Infrastructure (CCII) as an essential element of national power and international collaboration. Combined Critical Information Infrastructure Protection (CCIIP) is of enormous importance to the nation. Most critical sectors in a nation are dependent on the CCII.
This research was sponsored by the iCollege in collaboration with the Swedish National Defense College.
