    • Perspectives on cybersecurity: A collaborative study 

      Choucri, Nazli; Jackson, Chrisma (© Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    • Possibilistic beliefs and higher-level rationality 

      Chen, Jing; Micali, Silvio; Pass, Rafael (© Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014-06-09)
      We consider rationality and rationalizability for normal-form games of incomplete information in which the players have possibilistic beliefs about their opponents. In this setting, we prove that the strategies compatible ...
    • Rational robustness for mechanism design 

      Chen, Jing; Micali, Silvio (© Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009-11-10)
      The currently prevailing equilibrium-based approach to mechanism design suffers from a plurality of fundamental problems, and new conceptual frameworks are needed to solve or sufficiently alleviate them. In this paper, ...
    • Resilient and virtually perfect revenue from perfectly informed players 

      Chen, Jing; Hassidim, Avinatan; Micali, Silvio (© Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010-01-13)
      We put forward a new extensive-form mechanism that, in a general context with perfectly informed players and quasi-linear utilities, • Virtually achieves optimal revenue at a unique subgame-perfect equilibrium; • Is ...
    • Resilient mechanism design foundations for governance of cyberspace: Exploration in theory, strategy, and policy 

      Micali, Silvio; Choucri, Nazli; Chen, Jing; Williams, Cindy (© Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013-09)
      Three related trends in world politics – shifting in power relations, increased diversity of actors and entities, and the growing mobilization and politicization of global constituencies are contributing to a global “tussle” ...
    • Simulation modeling for cyber resilience 

      Siegel, Michael; Goldsmith, Daniel (© Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010-10)
      Identifying high-leverage intervention points to increase cyber resiliency—the ability to provide and maintain acceptable service levels in the face of challenges— requires identifying, integrating, and framing a diverse ...
    • System dynamics modeling for pro-active intelligence 

      Anderson, Ed; Choucri, Nazli; Goldsmith, Daniel; Madnick, Stuart E.; Siegel, Michael; e.a. (© Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009-11-04)
      The Pro-Active Intelligence (PAINT) program, sponsored by the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA), was formed to address the challenges1 posed by distributed human networks, including terrorists and ...
    • Systematic approaches to cyber insecurity 

      Goldsmith, Daniel; Siegel, Michael (© Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
      Recent developments have demonstrated that as the diffusion of cyber enabled technologies increases, so too does dependency on a cyber infrastructure susceptible to failure, outages, and attacks. While current efforts are ...
    • The Theory of Lateral Pressure Highlights of Quantification & Empirical Analysis 

      Choucri, Nazli; Agarwal, Gaurav (SSRN, 2016-11-11)
      Lateral Pressure refers to any tendency (or propensity) of individuals and societies to expand their activities and exert influence and control beyond their established boundaries, whether for economic, political, military, ...
    • Three views of cyberspace 

      Clark, David D. (© Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011-01-05)
      The purpose of this paper is to draw attention to an important but perhaps under- appreciated aspect of the Internet: the emergent idea of a global commons in the use of the Internet, in which people might transcend national ...
    • Tools of engagement: Mapping the tussles in cyberspace 

      Clark, David D. (© Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012-03-12)
      This paper has been prepared as part of the Explorations in Cyber International Relations project being carried out at MIT, Harvard and collaborating institutions. The goal of this paper is to lay the groundwork for the ...
    • Toward the design of a future Internet 

      Clark, David D. (© Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009-10-10)
      This document is one very preliminary proposal for the design of a Future Internet—an outline of requirements and architecture. This document should only be seen as a first step in such a proposal; there are many parts ...
    • Understanding cyber complexity: Systems modeling and the financial services sector 

      Goldsmith, Daniel; Siegel, Michael (© Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010-02)
      Recent developments within the financial services sector have demonstrated that as the diffusion of cyber enabled technologies increases, so too does dependency on a cyber infrastructure susceptible to failure, outages, ...
    • Understanding ICANN’s complexity in a growing and changing Internet 

      Testart, Cecilia (© Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
      The ever-increasing relevance of the Internet in all aspects of our lives has significantly raised the interest of cyberspace in the political, economical and international spheres. Internet governance and its future design ...
    • What is cybersecurity? Explorations in automated knowledge generation 

      Choucri, Nazli; Elbait, Gihan Daw; Madnick, Stuart E. (© Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012-11-06)
      This paper addresses a serious impediment to theory and policy for cybersecurity: Trivial as it might appear on the surface, there is no agreed upon understanding of the issue, no formal definition, and not even a consensus ...
