Faculty Receive Award to Study Virtual Computing Security


Professor Dr. Peng Ning, associate professor Dr. Tao Xie, and assistant professor Dr. Xuxian Jiang of the Department of Computer Science at NC State University, have been awarded $150,000 by the Army Research Office to support their research proposal titled “A Virtual Computing Testbed for Research and Education in Information Security.”
The award will run from July 1, 2010 through June 30, 2011.
Abstract - This proposal plans to build a virtual computing testbed for research and education in information security at North Carolina State University. The proposed virtual computing testbed will be developed on the basis of the current Virtual Computing Lab (VCL) environment to provide a test environment for rapid development and testing of a variety of ongoing research projects. It will also support the experimental components in system oriented information security courses. The results and experience gained from operating and managing a real computing environment will also provide practical insights for students and researchers on the operation of virtual computing infrastructures that help identify new security and performance problems and develop their practical solutions.
