Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA's) Office of the Chief
Scientist for Information Technology (AIO-4) is pleased to
invite you to participate in the Information Technology (IT)
- Information Systems Security (ISS) Research and Development
(R&D) Workshop, which will be held on May 6-8, 2003. The
purpose of the IT-ISS R&D Workshop is to:
IT & ISS R&D initiatives for the special needs
of the FAA for the next 5 years.
Discuss future FAA requirements that will impact our IT-ISS
avenues for collaborative R&D with other government
agencies and research establishments.
outcome of this workshop will be a documented and focused
strategy for conducting IT and ISS research. The goal of this
workshop is to identify and assess key areas of research for
the next 5 years. Four major areas of thrust will be investigated:
Real Time Intrusion Protect, Detect, Response, and Recovery
in the National Air Space System (with added emphasis
on response and recovery)
and Confidentiality in the Mobile Environment - especially
air/ground and terrestrial wireless
Trustworthy Systems from Untrustworthy Components with
Technology (e.g., Seamless Communications, Knowledge Management,
and Enterprise Architecture)
first day will consist of a review of current research initiatives.
The second day will be working breakout sessions to discuss
the above key areas for research. The morning of the third
day will present outbriefs from the breakout sessions.
workshop represents a significant first step in framing IT-ISS
research agendas for the FAA and other government agencies
in critically important areas.
