The Maryland Cybersecurity Center warmly congratulates Dr. Jonathan Katz, who was recently selected to lead a $1.5M cooperative agreement with the US Army Research Laboratory (ARL).

The agreement, titled "Developing a Science of Cybersecurity", will focus on developing foundational models, analytical tools, and robust techniques that can be used to transition cybersecurity from a collection of largely ad-hoc techniques to a field driven by rigorous scientific principles.

The work will be performed in collaboration with Professor Bill Arbaugh of the University of Maryland, researchers at ARL, and 8 other professors at universities nationwide.  The work will primarily address three research topics within this broad space: foundations of intrusion detection, moving-target defense, and network metrics and monitoring.

Dr. Katz in an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science and the University of Maryland Institute for Advanced Computer Studies.  He is an affiliate faculty member of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and the Department of Applied Mathematics and Scientific Computation at the University of Maryland, College Park.
