I'm currently looking for two smart Ph.D. students to work on a malware/reverse engineering project funded by NSF. Check out the "New NSF Cyber Grant" link below for more information.
At the 2014 annual meeting of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences (AAFS) in Seattle, I was promoted to AAFS Fellow. Thanks to the people who supported my promotion, and I'll see you at the next AAFS meeting in Orlando, FL, in 2015.
I'm the PI on a new NSF EAGER grant (with Carl Weems and Irfan Ahmed) that explores the relationship between psychological traits and both "good" and "bad" cyber behavior. The grant is approximately $250K and we'll complete the work over 2014-2015. We're excited about the work and the chance for the Departments of Computer Science and Psychology to work together for the first time.
Our $1.2M proposal, "TWC: Medium: Collaborative: Towards a Binary-Centric Framework for Cyber Forensics in Enterprise Environments", has been recommended for funding by the NSF. This is a collaboration between UNO and Purdue. I'm currently looking for two very smart Ph.D. students to work on this project, starting in September 2014. Please send me an email if you're interested.
From July 7-18, 2014, I'll be offering a free, intensive, two week IA training program for high school teachers. This effort is funded by a recent grant from the GenCyber program (a collaboration between NSA and NSF). The training program will cover a number of aspects of computer security, including digital forensics, malware analysis, social engineering, reverse engineering, penetration testing, and secure software design. You can apply for an invitation by clicking here.
I was recently invited by the local chapter of the IEEE to give a talk at Tulane on the foundations of digital forensics, privacy impacts, and current research efforts. The talk covered basic investigative methods, data leakage, live forensics analysis, some trends in both storage and computer architectures that have a serious impact on next-generation digital forensics tools. The technical level of the talk is intermediate. Click for a copy of the slides from the talk.
