What might cyber warfare look like? The security and survivability of multi-agent systems has received increased attention from the research community in recent years. The simulation of cyber agents operating on computer networks provides a means to explore security issues and identify behaviors that occur on large-scale networks. Moving from simulated cyber agents to situated cyber agents operating on actual networks remains a significant challenge. This presentation will cover some aspects of Sandia National Laboratory’s work on cyber agent security and survivability in a variety of application domains, with emphasis on the simulation of cyber agent conflict on large-scale computer networks. This work can be a key element in developing national cyber security policies.
Dr. Steven Y.Goldsmith is Distinguished Member of the Technical Staff at Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He received an MSEE in 1979 and a PhD in Engineering in 1989, both from the University of New Mexico. Dr. Goldsmith has focused his recent research efforts on intelligent agent systems and technology, particularly in the area of adaptive software architectures. His current projects involve the application of intelligent agents to advanced cyber systems, complex systems simulation, and distributed energy management problems.
This talk is part of the series “Cyber International Relations,”sponsored by the MIT’s Center for International Studies and the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. The series will develop a multi-dimensional view of
international conflict and cooperation within and regarding cyber space.
The Littauer Building is part of Harvard Kennedy School of Government, located on JFK Street, between Elliot St. and Memorial Drive.
