DSU faculty and REU student fellow win best paper award
The 23rd International Association of Science and Technology for Development's (IASTED) International Conference on Parallel and Distributed Computing and Systems, awarded "Securing epidemic based update protocol for P2P systems" the Best Paper Award at the 2011 conference. DSU professors, Dr. Michael Tu and Dr. Dianxiang Xu, along with National Science Foundation (NSF) Research Experience for the Undergraduate (REU) student fellow from Northern Kentucky University, Logan Smith, co-authored the paper.
The conference, held in Dallas, Texas from December 14 -16, 2011, brings together researchers from around the world to advance the theories and technologies of parallel and distributed computing systems. The award-winning paper analyzes potential sophisticated malicious denial of service attacks, which exploit the vulnerabilities existed in replica consistency control protocols for Peer-to-Peer systems. Anomaly detection and malicious source tracking algorithms were provided to prevent and control such attacks. This research is partially supported by the NSF REU Site: Information Assurance and Security.
