The Red Book
After the completion of its second year of operation, the SysSec
Network of Excellence produced this “Red Book of Cybersecurity”
to serve as a Roadmap in the area of Systems Security. To realize
this book, SysSec put together a “Task Force” of top-level young researchers
in the area steered by the advice of SysSec WorkPackage Leaders. The Task
Force had vibrant consultations (i) with the Working Groups of SysSec, (ii)
with the Associated members of SysSec, and (iii) with the broader Systems
Security Community. Capturing their feedback in an on-line questionnaire and
in forward-looking “what if” questions, the Task Force was able to distill their
knowledge, their concerns, and their vision for the future.
The result of this consultation has been captured in this Red Book which
we hope will serve as a Road Map of Systems Security Research and as an
advisory document for policy makers and researchers who would like to have an
impact on the Security of the Future Internet.
