Dr. Douglas Maughan is the Cyber Security Division Director in the Homeland Security Advanced Research Projects Agency (HSARPA) within the Science and Technology (S&T) Directorate of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Dr. Maughan has been at DHS since October 2003 and is directing and managing the Cyber Security Research and Development activities and staff at DHS S&T. His research interests and related programs are in the areas of networking and information assurance. Prior to his appointment at DHS, Dr. Maughan was a Program Manager at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in Arlington, Virginia. Prior to his appointment at DARPA, Dr. Maughan worked for the National Security Agency (NSA) as a senior computer scientist and led several research teams performing network security research. Dr. Maughan received Bachelor’s Degrees in Computer Science and Applied Statistics from Utah State University, a Masters degree in Computer Science from Johns Hopkins University, and a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC).
Abstract: The Internet plays a key role in our everyday lives. The public sector faces a challenging role when critical infrastructure is actually under the operational control of private enterprises. The best approach in this scenario is to facilitate the development of technologies, processes and information sharing that can help improve the security posture of private enterprises and to help raise the awareness within various industries regarding the need to improve the security posture of critical infrastructure.

The goals of the Cyber Security Division (CSD) within the Science and Technology Directorate of DHS are threefold: 1) To perform research and development aimed at improving the security of existing deployed technologies, and to ensure the security of emerging systems; 2) To develop new and enhanced technologies for the detection of, prevention of, and response to cyber-attacks on the nation's critical information infrastructure; and 3) To assist in the transfer of these technologies into the national infrastructure.

In this talk I will highlight some of the key ongoing initiatives of operational and strategic value to the Internet operations community such as RPKI/BGPSec, DNSSEC, Internet measurement, as well as research initiatives such as PREDICT, DETER, SWAMP and other transition projects targeted specifically at helping research technologies cross the valley of death.
