1 Institute for Cyber Security (ICS) Prof. Ravi Sandhu Executive Director and Lutcher Brown Endowed Chair

2 Ravi Sandhu BTech, MTech: Electrical Engineering, IIT Bombay, Delhi MS, PhD: Computer Science, Rutgers Asst Prof: Computer Science, Ohio State U (6 yrs) Assoc/Full Prof: Information Security, George Mason U (18 yrs) Full Prof: Computer Science, UTSA (started June 2007) ACM Fellow, IEEE Fellow Founding EIC ACM TISSEC: worlds leading security journal Past-Chairman ACM SIGSAC: worlds leading security society Founder ACM CCS: worlds leading security conference Co-Founder & Chief Scientist, TriCipher: Silicon Valley startup I am here because of past accomplishments but what matters and what excites me is the future opportunity at the bleeding edge

3 ICS Background 2000: UTSA and San Antonio Community identify strategic goal of excellence in Cyber Security 2001: Center for Infrastructure Assurance and Security (CIAS) established, garners success in service to DoD and DHS 2006: UTSA wins $3.5M State of Texas Emerging Technology Fund grant to create a new Institute for Cyber Security 2007: Prof. Ravi Sandhu recruited to found and lead ICS with additional $1M Endowed Chair and $1M UT STARS funding CIAS becomes a component of ICS ICS is an unique opportunity but true excellence requires hard work, patience and sustained support

4 ICS Scope Research – Tenure-track faculty and their graduate students – Research faculty and staff Education – Degree and non-degree programs Commercialization – The big challenge for UTSA and all research universities – Opportunity to be a national leader and role model Service – Public sector: build on CIAS success and beyond – Private sector: another big challenge Partnerships – Academia, Industry, Government, International A comprehensive big-tent Institute but the core will always remain research driven by tenure-track faculty

5 ICS Mission To pursue world-class high-impact cyber- security research, education, commercialization and service in synergy with relevant components of UTSA, and with world-class partners. Very ambitious but in our grasp

6 Change Drivers Stand-alone mainframes and mini-computers InternetEnterprise security Mutually suspicious security VandalsCriminals Entering an era of application- driven security Few and standard services Many and new innovative services

7 Research Opportunities What does it mean to be secure? – What are the appropriate tradeoffs in an application business context? – Who decides? – Who pays? How do we make it secure? – What do we need to invent to get there? – How do we use existing inventions to get there? Collaboration with application experts, especially where the applications themselves are cutting edge

8 ICS Plans Big investments – Tenure track faculty: seed money for new lines – Laboratory: renovate, refurbish, equipment, staff Smaller investments – Seed money: work that will lead to funding down the line – Bridge money: continue work between grants Come talk to me and conversely

9 Personal Research Agenda Develop a framework for dealing with security – RBAC, UCON, PEI Demonstrate utility of this framework in diverse contexts, evolve the framework as needed Engage with industry to understand their priorities and place doctoral students in internships and jobs Lots of scope for collaboration

10 RBAC96

11 UCON 2004

12 PEI Models: Policy, Enforcement, Implementation
