The emergence of AI/ML research for cybersecurity is meant to advance operation efficiency and reduction in cyber incidents. Unfortunately, the adoption of AI/ML advances for practical cyber defense has been slow and sporadic. With the various public and private support to transition research into practice, one would expect a much broader success by now. A key challenge to the limitation of practical impact of AI/ML research for cybersecurity is the lack of quality artifacts – the lack of know-how and recognized processes to curate, evaluate, share, and sustain the growth in development and uses of software, datasets, and experimental methodologies.

In recent years, researchers are increasingly producing and sharing their artifacts. Several conferences, workshops, journals are starting to encourage and recognize research artifacts and practitioners are trying to appreciate the value of research artifacts. However, many challenges and issues remain:

Recent discussions through NSF 2021 CNS RFI and NSF 2022 SaTC PI Meeting have offered some insights to the challenges and opportunities for network system datasets and cybersecurity artifacts. Built upon these, this panel will invite researchers and practitioners from academia, industry, and government to discuss the current efforts, challenges, needs, and opportunities on curation of AI/ML software prototypes, datasets, and experimental methodologies for cybersecurity operations.
