The Sharing Expertise and Artifacts for Reuse through Cybersecurity Community Hub (SEARCCH) project aims to help improve the overall scientific quality of cybersecurity research by developing, deploying, and supporting new, innovative community infrastructure that enables the transfer and reuse of cybersecurity experimentation expertise and artifacts, including testbeds, methodologies, tools, data, and best practices. This infrastructure will provide an open, online “knowledge hub” to support experimentation, testing, and education. The team is working to develop an initial artifact metadata description, pre-populate the hub with artifacts, develop artifact import tools, and engage the community to develop a diverse set of content.
SEARCCH is a collaborative effort among the University of Southern California Information Sciences Institute (USC-ISI), SRI International Computer Science Laboratory, University of Utah School of Computing, and University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign Information Trust Institute. The project is funded under the Secure and Trustworthy Cyberspace (SaTC) program at the National Science Foundation (NSF), under Grant Nos. 1925773, 1925616, 1925588, and 1925564.
