A paper presented by Errin Fulp, associate professor of computer science, was recognized at the Military Communications Conference Oct. 30. The paper, "Distributed Data Parallel Techniques for Content-Matching Intrusion Detection Systems,” was selected as the best among 2,000 entries for the Fred Ellersick Award. Fulp says this research will lead to the next generation of network security systems.
The research was done in the summer of 2006 with computer science undergraduate student Patrick Wheeler and graduate student Chris Kopek, who made it the subject of his master’s degree thesis. The research was sponsored by the Department of Energy and GreatWall Systems Inc.
