Dr. Endadul Hoque, assistant professor at SCIS along with his collaborators from Purdue University and Northeastern University received the Network Security Distinguished Paper Award at Network and Distributed System Security Symposium (NDSS) 2018 for his paper titled “Automated Attack Discovery in TCP Congestion Control Using a Model-guided Approach“. This is one of the 4 top conferences in the area of security.
As per the Program Committee and the Jury, his paper is remarkable in advancing the state-of-the-art techniques of automated vulnerability discovery. They believe his system designed to find vulnerabilities in real-world implementations of large-scale network protocols will influence other researchers in this domain as well as has a great potential to create a significant impact in aiding the development of secure systems.
Dr. Hoque paper also received some additional attention as it was featured in an article of Internet Society about automated vulnerability discovery, “NDSS 2018: Automating the Process of Vulnerability Discovery”.
