The Intrepid Approach

Statistical hypothesis testing for just-in-time security.

Engineering and math-based computer science is replete with the "possible" and the "impossible." For example, computing a shortest path in a graph is possible in polynomial time. However, provable computer security is undecidable and deemed "impossible." This merely means that it is impossible to automate the task of providing computer security.

Enter experimental science, hypothesis formulation, study design, and statistical hypothesis testing. These tools make it feasible for experts to re-secure a computer that has been hacked. A good scientist can thwart worms faster than hackers can innovate them.
