16-18 page (minimum length) paper in which identifies and assess emerging cybersecurity approaches and technologies as well as discuss government efforts to nurture the development of these emerging technologies.
An emerging technology is a technology that is in the genesis stage, is still being researched and developed, and has not been proven, standardized, or widely adopted. One way (but not the only way) to identify emerging cybersecurity approaches and technologies can be based on its novelty and interest as demonstrated by the availability of 5 or more recent (less than 12 months old) research papers from IEEE or ACM sources that address the identified cybersecurity technology/approach. By that criteria, fingerprint biometrics, eye biometrics, voice print ID as a class are all unacceptable topics. There may be a new research result in one of these areas, but the basic idea and first deployments of these technologies occurred over 30 years ago. These technologies are not emerging.
