BoF: Sharing Cybersecurity Experimentation Artifacts to Accelerate Progress
Friday, 11 December 2020
14:30 - 16:00

The sharing of repeatable, reproducible, and reusable artifacts in cybersecurity experimentation can greatly enhance one’s ability to build upon the work of others and compare solutions. The Sharing Expertise and Artifacts for Reuse through Cybersecurity Community Hub project, or SEARCCH, is an NSF-funded effort an open collaboration platform that lowers the barrier to sharing (see https://searcch.cyberexperimentation.org). SEARCCH will help researchers package and share experiment designs, code, data, and other research artifacts in an easier and more meaningful manner. In addition, it will help researchers quickly find and reuse relevant artifacts they can leverage in their own work to produce better results.
We invite all researchers to participate in this Birds of a Feather (BoF) session, where we will introduce the strawman SEARCCH sharing hub and elicit your comments and feedback to help shape the hub and make it an invaluable resource for sharing and finding artifacts that improve the quality of cybersecurity research.
