Abstract

Recent years have seen increasing calls to make security research more “scientific”. Who can argue with science being desirable? But what exactly do people mean when they suggest this, and what are they really seeking? There is little clarity on what a “Science of Security” would look like. We consider this question, in the context of historical science and more recent security research, offer observations and insights, and suggest where things might be improved.
