Cyber Security CRA


The objective of the Cyber Security CRA is to develop a fundamental understanding of cyber phenomena, theories, and empirically validated models that can be applied to a broad range of Army domains, applications, and environments.

The mission of the Cyber Security CRA is to bring together government, industry, and academia researchers to develop and advance the state of the art of cyber security in the following research thrust areas:

  • Learning for Deception Research Area seeks to develop theories and models that relate fundamental properties and capabilities of adaptive deception techniques for defense and mission resilience.
  • Detection Research Area seeks to develop theories and models that relate properties and capabilities of cyber threat detection and recognition processes/mechanisms to properties of malicious activity, and properties of Army networks.
  • Agility Research Area seeks to develop theories and models to support planning and control of cyber maneuvers (in the space of network characteristics and topologies) that are influenced by fundamental properties of threats.

Program Structure

The Cyber Security CRA conducts research under a series of annual or biennial program plans. Each program plan provides an opportunity for innovative and new research to be proposed by teams assembled from the consortium of CRA academic and industry participants and ARL and other government partners.
