NSF Awards $1M for Mobile CPS Security

Danda B. Rawat, Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science (EECS) and Director of Data Science & Cybersecurity Center (DSC2), and Moses Garuba, CEA Associate Dean, have been awarded a three-year grant of $1 million by the National Science Foundation (NSF) for their project entitled "Security Engineering for Resilient Mobile Cyber-Physical Systems."  The College of Engineering and Architecture (CEA) is dedicated to increasing the level of cutting edge research with projects like this. 

The research objective of this award is to significantly advance the field of cybersecurity for networked systems. The proposed research leverages multidisciplinary expertise in cybersecurity for connected systems, transportation cyber physical systems, cognitive radio networking, information security, big data analytics and distributed cloud computing to significantly advance the knowledge base and understanding of the emerging field of cyber-physical system security. The goal is to design, develop and evaluate the cyber-defense solutions for resilient cyber-physical systems using a federated framework. The project also aims to strengthen the institution's EECS doctoral program and attract, retain and graduate underrepresented students in the field of cyber security research. The project supports United States government efforts to produce the next-generation of cybersecurity experts needed for government, academia and industry. The research will have applications in numerous areas including public safety networks, vehicular networks, Internet-of-Battle-Field-Things, robotic networks, unmanned aerial vehicular (UAV) networks, Internet-of-things and secure cyberspace.
