Program Description Securing cyberspace, defending against and preventing cyberattacks are not new but have become increasingly pressing in the light of technological advancements. Software and protocols are only becoming more complex to meet application demands. More flexible computing environments such as distributed systems need new ways of thinking to ensure secure end-to-end functionalities even though components are only known to be individually secure. The emergence of nano-scale and quantum computing with various physical realizations and different architectures further compound technological challenges for cybersecurity. Although engineering practices continue to provide short-term and temporary relieves to these pressing needs, new scientific ideas are required to address the inherent insecurity in cyberspace. Many fundamental concepts are still eluding precise formulation and awaiting rigorous responses. The goal of this Basic Research program is to explore novel, promising ideas and methodologies that can establish a firm scientific foundation for cybersecurity and potentially tackle the difficult technical hurdles put forth in the previous paragraph.
