  • This paper puts into perspective the directions of cybersecurity research with a goal of determining where it will lead us. Based on the analysis of the previous works, the author recommends adhering to the basic countermeasure principles as a solution to the long-standing dilemma of security researchers and experts in the endless race against the attackers. Secure communications are one of the necessities to humankind. It has been around for centuries, taking many different forms, from manual lock and keys to modern cryptographic systems, all aimed at one goal: to keep the data secret known only to its intended recipients. Globally, many attempts have been made to create an ultimately secure way to transport data, but the same number of efforts have been put by attackers to break these secure systems, thus the competition between crypto designers and the attackers.
