The award establishes a new REU Site focused on the security of mobile devices at New York Institute of Technology (NYIT). Undergraduates will gain hands-on research experiences in simulating the spread of malware on mobile devices, implementing cryptographic algorithms and authentication schemes studying topology control of wireless networks, geolocating smartphones, detecting physical attacks on a network of mobile devices, and developing privacy protected sensing methods using mobile devices. Students will work during the summer with a team of experienced faculty in labs on the NYIT campus. The project includes professional development activities for students and engagement with industry. This project is co-funded by the Office of Cyberinfrastructure.
