NSF-funded cybersecurity research at Princeton, and by Princeton alumni
This week the National Science Foundation announced its research grants for Secure and Trustworthy Cyberspace (SaTC). The NSF singled out three largest, multi-institution awards for special mention. Every one of those has a Principal Investigator who's an alumnus of, or current faculty in, Princeton Computer Science.
The project "The Science and Applications of Crypto-Currency" has PIs including Professor Emin Gun Sirer of Cornell University, who received his Bachelor's degree from Princeton CS in 1993.
The project "Internet-Wide Vulnerability Measurement, Assessment and Notification" has PIs including Professor Alex Halderman of Michigan, who received his PhD from Princeton CS in 2009.
The project "Towards a Science of Censorship Resistance" has PIs including Professor Nick Feamster of Princeton University.
Other current PIs of continuing NSF SaTC awards include these Princeton CS alumni: Brent Waters*04, Nadia Heninger*11, Dan Wallach*99, Xinming Ou*05, Xinming Ou (too), Dinghao Wu*05, David Wagner, Limin Jia*08, Lujo Bauer, Angelos Keromytis, Gang Tan*05, and Dan Boneh*96.
