ABSTRACT

Interdisciplinary Pathways Towards a More Secure Internet   [open pdf - 5MB]

"The Internet ecosystem plays a vital role in tightly integrating the economic, political, and cultural fabric of society. These interdependencies leave the Nation vulnerable to a wide range of threats, with potential impacts extending into nearly every facet of daily life. The security of cyberspace depends upon a range of interconnected factors, ranging from foundational knowledge in computing and communications to the policies that govern the use of the Internet and related technologies. Transformative advances in cybersecurity require a holistic approach. To help accelerate this process, the National Science Foundation sponsored a unique, interdisciplinary workshop, the Cybersecurity Ideas Lab, from February 10-12, 2014, in Arlington, Virginia. This event convened participants with expertise ranging from computer science to economics to law, from academia, government and the private sector, to develop actionable ideas with the potential to significantly enhance the security of the Internet ecosystem. The group was charged to think in both the long- and short-term; to consider both radical innovations and endorsement of existing ideas; and to recommend actions in any sector, not limited to research and development activities. Many exciting ideas emerged at the workshop; the most developed are presented in the form of recommendations in the following report."
