In Cyber Security and Information Sciences, Lincoln Laboratory conducts research, development, evaluation, and deployment of prototype components and systems designed to improve the security of computer networks, hosts, and applications. A particular focus is the intersection between the Laboratory's traditional mission areas and the cyber domain. Efforts include cyber analysis; creation and demonstration of robust architectures that can operate through cyber attacks; development of prototypes that demonstrate the practicality and value of new techniques for cryptography, cyber sensing, automated threat analysis, anti-tamper systems, and malicious code detection; demonstrations of the impact of cyber on traditional kinetic systems; quantitative, repeatable evaluation of these prototypes; and, where appropriate, deployment of prototype technology to national-level exercises and operations. The Laboratory develops and deploys control and traffic-generation software for many of the Department of Defense's largest cyber ranges.
In the human language technology area, emphasis is placed on realistic data and experimental evaluation of techniques for speech recognition, speaker recognition, language and dialect identification, speech and audio signal enhancement, and machine translation.
Advanced hardware, software, and algorithm technologies for processing large, high-dimensional datasets from a wide range of data sources are also developed, focusing on novel computer architectures; high-performance and cloud computing technologies; and novel analytics for handling high-dimensional datasets, specifically graph analytics and techniques for fusing and analyzing data from multiple data sources.
