Wu and Qu awarded AFOSR grant for high-performance trusted computing platforms

ISR affiliated Associate Professor Min Wu (ECE/UMIACS) and Associate Professor Gang Qu (ECE/UMIACS) have received a grant from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) for research on novel applications of data hiding in computer programs. Wu is the principal investigator (PI) and Qu is co-PI for the 3-year, $300,000 effort that aims at building high-performance trusted computing platforms.

Performance and security are two of the most important design requirements for computing systems that carry out critical defense and commercial missions. This research effort will investigate building a high-performance trusted computing platform based on novel data hiding algorithms that embed information into compiled program binaries. The embedded data can be extracted during the program’s execution to facilitate the system in enhancing system-wide performance and providing trustworthy computing.
