Title: Support for the Core Research Activities and Studies of the Computer Science and Telecommunications Board: Final Technical Report

Abstract

This award provided partial support for the operation of the Computer Science and Telecommunications Board. This included planning, organization, and agenda preparation for twice-annual board meetings; selection and organization of topical sessions at board meetings; identification and recruiting of outside speakers; and identifying and recruiting new board members from academia and industry. A number of study reports or related materials were enabled in part by support under this award (and largely funded through separate project‐specific awards): In 2018: Quantum Computing: Progress and Prospects, which assesses the current progress and possible future pathways towards developing a general-purpose quantum computer as well as its potential implications; Recoverability as a First-Class Security Objective, which summarizes presentations and discussions from a Feb. 2018 Forum on Cyber Resilience workshop on how to restore normal operations and security following an attack or failure of software or hardware; Securing the Vote: Protecting American Democracy, which recommends steps that the federal government, state and local governments and election administrators can take to make elections more secure, accessible, reliable, and verifiable; Opportunities from the Integration of Simulation and Data Science: Proceedings of a Workshop, which examines current and emerging science applications that span simulation and data-driven science, their characteristics,more » and future approaches for cyberinfrastructure to support them; Data Science for Undergraduates: Opportunities and Options, which offers a vision for the emerging discipline of data science at the undergraduate level and outlines considerations and approaches for academic institutions and others to help guide the ongoing transformation of the field; and Decrypting the Encryption Debate: A Framework for Decision-Makers, which proposes a framework for evaluating proposals to provide authorized government access to the plaintext of encrypted communications and stored data. In 2017: Emergency Alert and Warning Systems: Current Knowledge and Future Research Directions, which explores how a more effective national alert and warning system might be created and sets forth a research agenda to advance the nation’s alert and warning capabilities; Software Update as a Mechanism for Resilience and Security: Proceedings of a Workshop, which summarizes discussions at a workshop organized by the Cyber Resilience Forum exploring practices, mechanisms, policies, and technologies; Foundational Cybersecurity Research: Improving Science, Engineering, and Institutions, which focuses on foundational research strategies and on building collaborative links across disciplines and between research and practice; Information Technology and the U.S. Workforce: Where are We and Where do We Go from Here?, which explores current and emerging information technology capabilities and their interplay with various dimensions of work, and highlights areas where new research and data would help to improve understanding and inform future decision-making; and Cryptographic Agility and Interoperability: Proceedings of a Workshop, which summarizes discussions at a Cyber Resilience Forum workshop on drivers for cryptographic agility and its technical and societal implications. In 2016: A 21st Century Cyber-Physical Systems Education, which describes the knowledge and skills required to engineer increasingly capable, adaptable, and trustworthy systems that integrate the cyber and physical worlds and recommends paths for creating the courses and programs needed to educate the engineering workforce that builds them; Data Breach Aftermath and Recovery for Individuals and Institutions: Proceedings of a Workshop, which summarizes the presentations and discussions from a January 2016 workshop convened by the Cyber Resilience Forum; and Exploring Encryption and Potential Mechanisms for Authorized Government Access to Plaintext: Proceedings of a Workshop, which summarizes presentations and discussions at a June 2016 workshop. CSTB's reports, enabled in part by support under this award, and its website provide a resource for researchers and policy makers concerned with information technology research, development, deployment, implications, and policy. All past and current work is made available to the public through this Web site. Also, briefings on study results were provided to project sponsors and other interested parties.« less
