Associate Professor Min Wu (ECE/UMIACS) has been awarded a new National Science Foundation (NSF) grant, titled "Forensic Hash for Assured Cyber-based Sensing and Communications." This grant provides $344K support over three years for Prof. Wu's research effort.

The objective of this research is to address the challenge in trustworthy sensing and communications, as content-rich audio-visual streams become increasingly adapted on-the-fly for individual receivers. The proposed project develops a novel framework of Forensic Hash for Information Assurance, or FASHION in short. The FASHION framework utilizes a strategically designed compact string and the associated decision mechanism to transcend the capabilities of conventional hash and non-intrusive forensics. Offering more forensic answers about data integrity, origin, and processing history in higher accuracy and efficiency, the proposed framework overcomes the current one-size-fit-all dilemma and enables trust assessment at a higher level.
