Prof. Deng receives NSF grant for networks research

Prof. Deng has been awarded a grant from NSF (award 1320428) for his project “Security in Dynamic Environments: Harvesting Network Randomness and Diversity,” which will support this research project from August 1, 2013 until July 31, 2016. In this project, which is a collaborative effort with researchers at Louisiana State University and Iowa State University, Prof. Deng will be studying techniques for extracting and using the randomness that is inherent in communication networks. Applications of network randomness show promise for improving network security, and provide important new insight into the statistical nature of networks.
