The main research objective of the proposed COE-CS is to develop a cloud-based, big-data analysis capable Cyber Analysis, Simulation and Experimentation Environment (CASE-V) to enhance situational awareness and decision support capabilities for cyber defense and cyber training. To accomplish this objective, the Center will focus on the following research areas:


Research Thrust 1: Cyber Intelligence and Cyber Defense

Lead: Dr. Sachin Shetty at Old Dominion University

Focus: Explore innovative theories, methodologies and techniques in cyber intelligence and cyber defense, and leverage bid date analytics and CASE-V capabilities.

Research Thrust 2: Cyber Modeling, simulation, Analysis and Decision Support

Lead: Dr. Jose Padilla at Old Dominion University (ODU)

Focus: Develop foundational modeling, simulation, analysis, intelligent systems and decision support capabilities for CASE-V, with a focus on live-virtual-constructive (l-v-c) simulation and kinetic simulation system interoperability, to support cyber defense, training and mission planning operations.

Research Thrust 3: Cyber Training, and Intrusion Detection and Response

Lead: Dr. Jonathan Graham at Norfolk State University (NSU)

Focus: Develop intrusion detection, mitigation and forensic analysis capabilities for CASE-V to defend against future advanced threats, and develop integrated training capabilities for cyber defense and response.

Research Thrust 4: CASE-V Framework and Test Bed

Lead: Dr. George Hsieh at Norfolk State University (NSU)

Focus: Develop a synthetic CASE-V framework and test bed with a distributed, virtual and big data-enabled infrastructure capable of interoperability with selected existing large-scale cyber security test beds in DoD, DHS and DoE
