The 5 Aims of Information Security Research

The aim of information security research, it seems to me, is to understand, and thereby directly or indirectly improve security. There are five main objectives of security research:

1) To improve security in an organisational context;
2) To improve security at a particular point, or component, of technology;
3) To quantify, assess or manage security;
4) To integrate security into an otherwise insecure system, process or architecture;
and finally...
5)       To break security.
