Network security is becoming a major issue in our daily life. Firewall technology seems to be insufficient as we are having more and security break-in reports on worm, various attacks. In theory, it is impossible to prevent such attacks. Therefore, it is very important to have a second defence which is intrusion detection. Several interesting prjects are given below.
Project 1: Anomaly intrusion detection. Normally firewall technology can detect attacks with known features. However new ways of attack are happening all the time. There is a need to detect attacks with unknown features. Anomaly detection is a promising technology that can detect unknown attacks. This project tries to explore effective schemes to reduce high false alarm rates in the existing technologies.
Project 2: Wireless sensor network security. Wireless sensor network is regarded as the most influencing technology in the 21st century. However, security is a major issue in sensor network as it is normally deployed in a hostile environment and also it can not afford many existing security mechanisms due to energy issue. Theis project will explore energy efficient security schemes especially on cryptography key generation and distribution.
