CyBASE hosts a group of researchers composed of faculty members from different programs as well as professionals from different departments at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University's Daytona Beach Campus.

CyBASE performs research in cybersecurity associated with critical infrastructures and assured systems such as aviation and aerospace systems. CyBASE researchers are currently involved in projects in the following areas:

  • Aviation and Aerospace Cybersecurity
  • Embedded and Cyber-Physical Systems Security
  • Safety and Security Analysis for End-to-End System Assurance
  • Cloud/Fog Computing and Software-Defined Networking Security
  • Machine Learning Applications to Systems Assurance
  • Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) Control, Safety Assurance, and Security

CyBASE projects are carried out in the Cybersecurity Engineering Lab (CybEL) or in the Digital Systems Laboratory, or both depending on the needs of a project.  Both labs also host students who are associated with the projects and CyBASE researchers. Students interested in cybersecurity and cybersecurity engineering can check out the Cybersecurity Application and Management Minor offered by the Department of Security Studies & International Affairs, as well as the Cybersecurity Engineering Minor and Cybersecurity Engineering Area of Concentration in the Computer Science program and the Master of Science in Cybersecurity Engineering (MSCybE) degree offered by the Department of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science. Students can also join the White Hat Eagles Cybersecurity student club and participate in their activities.
