Grad Students Win European Trusted Infrastructure Summer School Scholarships

Three graduate students in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) and the Institute for Systems Research (ISR) won scholarships to attend the 5th European Trusted Infrastructure Summer School (ETISS 2010), which was hosted at Royal Holloway, University of London, by the Information Security Group (ISG), from September 5-10, 2010. The students, Shanshan Zheng, Shalabh Jain and Johnny Ta, are advised by Professor John Baras (ISR/ECE).

The ISG is one of the largest academic security groups in the world. It brings together in a single institution expertise in education, research and practice in the field of information security. The university campus is located in the countryside of Surrey, in the historic town of Egham, Runnymede, where the Magna Carta was sealed in 1215.

The summer school covered a variety of fields related to creating a trusted infrastructure to cope with the demands of current and future information processing. This included Trusted Computing, machine virtualization, new hardware architectures, and new network security architecture. The aim of the summer school is to provide a program that is useful for both new and established researchers in the area. Introductory sessions precede practical labs, advanced lectures, specialized workshops and seminars. The week also included keynote talks from several influential figures.

All three students are working on research topics with Professor Baras involving physical layer security of wireless devices and networks.
