This article summarizes characterizes key cyberspace threats and identifies strategies to assure Air Force systems from this strategic computing study. Cyber Vision 2025 articulates where the Air Force should lead, follow, and watch in partnership with others in science and technology in the near, mid, and far term. This article summarizes several security principles identified during the study and describes a research roadmap for cyberspace assurance. It briefly describes four cross-domain, integrating themes that are guiding Air Force S&T investments: mission assurance and empowerment, agility and resilience, optimized human-machine systems, and software and hardware foundations of trust.
