The Department of Homeland Security, Science and Technology Directorate, Cyber Security Division hosted their annual show case late last year. This event gives all active researchers the opportunity to briefly cover their area of research. DHS just posted the videos. These are definitely worth watching - you will get a good idea of the program areas and the great research (and transition) that is going on.
I am currently working on two new projects with this group, one focused on complex distributed Telephony Denial of Service (TDoS) and another on TDoS and other issues affecting Next Generation 911 systems. I documented the first project in a previous post. The second just started and I will introduce it in a subsequent post.
