MIT Lincoln Laboratory Cyber Security and Information Sciences MIT LINCOLN LABORATORY MAKE A DIFFERENCE For over 60 years, Lincoln Laboratory has been the part of MIT focusing on advanced technology for national security. We employ some of the nation’s best talent to develop solutions to hard problems that make a difference to the country and to the world. In the Cyber Security and Information Sciences Division, we’ve been growing fast. From conducting fundamental research to deploying technology prototypes for operational users, our team is dedicated to serving the nation and the world. We’re proud of the work that we do and the team that we’re growing. Take a look through the pages that follow.

Everyone is friendly and intellectually curious, and when you combine that with the type of work we do, you end up having fascinating discussions.” n isi o de c e ssi ial soc on lan tur ec hit ag es e fac sys tem gu s n ear ch tio res arc mi h sha lua use on ati at a e nc orm ell bi gd key nt u vis n ant tio za ali ks or tw ne ige ses rci s exe ign ifi libraries c n int inf rin g ec ge ran ts tes spe op us t eva m te act st pla ent nn ivit ies ing y ph foc ve l gra de pto yp in g ot cry ot pr ns las ex tio me oftware tr ac ing og ess ss ion loitat tec n tio ass ks tas h arcacce ve ensi pro ss ce pro iobnuil t i d n s tic ns a ly na ricee c vo reh omp c technology t ien il res tio tio enable era s protect ls lua l na tio pro a r e em j op be ects dd s e c d tri integrate links ie e lud eva tation op ilit ab rs “Lincoln Laboratory affords the opportunity to collaborate with talented and personable colleagues on interesting problems critical to national security. The emphasis on continued growth and learning fosters an environment that keeps pace with cutting-edge advancements in technology, guaranteeing the operational relevance of our work.” Alexia Schulz PhD, Physics, 2007 Harvard University too n ols eseexp ain atio in ng w mi toc machine learning m do ian eriz ard IC s simulation group tea aw s ust jor ts on ract ivil cyber pro instrumen support me military inc thr ma ea operations ctu s re ue niqr h c te c ed cap government thr ssi tru cha nt engaged ics lyt ati ana on rity ful computing ras e op fic secure human s control n atio r e p o C2 data lysis a modeling an mi inf g tin tes me lsc ture hitec arc ge nti d cyb DoD ate ers na u sec ma Joseph Zipkin PhD, Mathematics, 2014 University of California, Los Angeles ide rel Alan Keith MS, Computer Science, 2014 Carnegie Mellon ty University uri ec “I love the Lab’s flat organizational culture and its sense of mission. Everyone contributes, and everyone’s contributions matter.” “Working at Lincoln Laboratory means exciting technical challenges every day, incredibly smart people, and an atmosphere that forces me to learn and grow as an engineer and scientist. At the end of the day, I know that I’m not just building widgets – I am making a real impact on problems that actually matter.” Patrick Hulin BS, Mathematics and Computer Science, 2014 Massachusetts Institute of Technology 1 HANDS-ON RESEARCH TECHNOLOGY Lincoln Laboratory engages in a wide variety of research and development for cyber security and information sciences. From development and prototyping through transition into operations, Lincoln Laboratory researchers are tackling challenging problems to advance state-of-the-art systems and technologies. Matthew Alt monitors signal traces to analyze the startup behavior of an automotive engine management unit as part of an effort to rehost the engine software in a virtual machine. The rehosted software allows testing of cyber resiliency techniques to protect automobiles from malicious cyber attacks. 2 Brandon Matthews develops testbed components for evaluating cell phones in a realistic wireless environment. The Cyber Security and Information Sciences Division performs R&D in the areas of • Intrusion detection and prevention • Human language technology • Cloud security • Visual analytics • System exploitation • Data sensing and fusion •Cryptography •Human-machine interaction • Metrics and measurement • Big data analytics • Social network analysis •High-performance secure computing Resilient Systems Director Eric Evans and Jeremy Kepner, with the LLGrid team, cut the ribbon to inaugurate the newly deployed EcoPod, which houses Lincoln Laboratory’s “green” SuperCloud research supercomputer. 3 SERVICE TO THE NATION IMPACT Lincoln Laboratory researchers don’t just sit behind desks, and the technology we develop doesn’t just sit on a shelf. From pioneering research to leveraging the best ideas, we solve problems in the most relevant and difficult technical areas of national security. 4 United States Cyber Command personnel from across the country participate in a series of cyber defense training exercises hosted by Lincoln Laboratory. Daniel Souza demonstrates real-time cyber and radio-frequency data feeds into augmented-reality glasses. Diane Staheli and Rick Larkin test advanced technology prototypes for U.S. Southern Command. 5 COLLABORATIVE ENVIRONMENT PEOPLE Lincoln Laboratory’s Cyber Security and Information Sciences Division is committed to technical excellence through the people it hires.
