Quantifying risk for decentralized offensive cyber operations
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2017-06)
Computer networks and the amount of information stored within government computer networks have become ubiquitous. With the possible decentralization of authorities to conduct offensive cyber operations, leaders and their ...
Efficient orchestration of data centers via comprehensive and application-aware trade-off exploration
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2016-12)
Software-defined network (SDN) orchestration, the problem of integrating and deploying multiple network control functions (NCFs) while minimizing suboptimal network states that can result from competing NCF proposals, is ...
Methodology for the system integration of adaptive resilience in armor
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2016-09)
This dissertation introduces a novel augmentation to system-engineering methodology based on the integration of adaptive capacity, which produces enhanced resilience in technological systems that operate in complex operating ...
Affine equivalence and constructions of cryptographically strong Boolean functions
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2013-09)
In this thesis, we study a type of affine equivalence for the monomial rotation-symmetric (MRS) Boolean func-tions and two new construction techniques for cryptographic Boolean functions based on the affine equivalence of ...
Solving multi-variate polynomial equations in a finite field
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2013-06)
Solving large systems of multivariate polynomial equations is an active area of mathematical research, as these polynomials are used in many fields of science. The objective of this research is to advance the development ...
Validating computational human behavior models: consistency and accuracy issues
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2004-06)
As leaders of the Department of Defense (DoD) rely more on modeling and simulation (MandS) to provide information on which they base strategic and tactical decisions, the credibility of simulations becomes more important. ...
Enhancements and extensions of formal models for risk assessment in software projects
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2002-09)
The Modified Risk Model is a macro model developed to aid program managers in effectively planning the required effort to deliver software products. The model projects the probability of completing a software project, ...
A computational model and multi-agent simulation for information assurance
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School., 2002-06)
This dissertation introduces a computational model of IA called the Social-Technical Information Assurance Model (STIAM). STIAM models organizations, information infrastructures, and human actors as a complex adaptive ...
Auditory-visual cross-modal perception phenomena
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1998-09-01)
The quality of realism in virtual environments is typically considered to be a function of visual and audio fidelity mutually exclusive of each other. However, the virtual environment participant, being human, is multi- ...
On the quasimonotonicity of a square linear operator with respect to a nonnegative cone
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1998-06)
The question of when a square, linear operator is quasimonotone nondecreasing with respect to a nonnegative cone was posed for the application of vector Lyapunov functions in 1974. Necessary conditions were given in 1980, ...
