Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory



Livermore Laboratory explores and develops innovative technologies and approaches to enhance the resiliency of U.S. infrastructure to physical, cyber, and environmental threats. This includes:

  • Identification of vulnerabilities
  • Science-based, threat-informed risk analysis
  • Analysis of mitigation options
  • Design, testing and pilot deployment of mitigations
  • Infrastructure architecture enhancement to improve efficiency, resilience, and reliability

Laboratory scientists leverage programs and connections with DOE, DHS, industry and the State of California.


The Laboratory's cyber and infrastructure program includes the following:

Critical Infrastructure Cyber Security

We apply Laboratory core strengths in high performance computing, data analytics, and threat awareness to enhance the security and resiliency of civilian networks and critical infrastructure to cyber threats. Our work in this area includes modeling and simulation, threat detection, situational awareness, software assurance, risk analysis, threat anticipation, and assessments.


Infrastructure Systems

We enable the secure, resilient, reliable, and sustainable design and operation of the nation’s infrastructure systems now and into the future through the application of LLNL core strengths in systems engineering, high performance computing, and data analytics. Our work in this area includes: advanced infrastructure modeling and simulation, cross infrastructure data informatics for operational intelligence, and risk and multihazard analysis.


Borders and Physical Security

We support the definition, quantification, and mitigatation of physical threats to infrastructure and border security through analysis and sophisticated modeling and simulation capabilities. Our work in this area includes: tactics and technology analysis, security plan analysis and testing, and training and rehearsal.


Water Security and Technology

We develop technologies and approaches to protect the nation’s water infrastructure and meet the increasing demand for clean water. Our work in this area includes: low-energy water production and management technologies, regional climate projections, and modeling and simulation of water sources and infrastructure.
