REU Project

Sponsored by the National Science Foundation’s Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU), the New York Institute of Technology’s REU summer program focuses on Smartphone Security and Mobile Network Research. The NYIT REU program will run for three consecutive years, starting on June 2 and extending to August 9, 2013 at our Manhattan campus, located on 1855 Broadway, New York City. This program is led by Dr. Ziqian (Cecilia) Dong, Assistant Professor of Electrical & Computer Engineering at NYIT’s School of Engineering & Computing Sciences (SoECS), and managed by Dr. Marta Panero, at NYIT’s SoECS.

The NYIT REU Program targets 10 motivated and talented undergraduate students attending colleges and universities from across the country. The selected applicants collaborate with NYIT faculty and graduate students in research on methods of securing smartphones and their networks using both hardware and software approaches. The application is highly competitive, broadly publicized, and encourages women and minority students to apply.

Undergraduates will gain hands-on research experiences in simulating the spread of malware on smartphones, implementing cryptographic algorithms and authentication schemes for smartphones, studying topology control of wireless networks, geolocating smartphones, detecting physical attack on a network of smartphones, and developing privacy-protected medical sensing methods using smartphones.

Among students’ projects for 2013 include:

  • Wireless Network Topology Control
  • Medical Data Collection Privacy
  • Cryptography
  • User Authentication
  • Physical/Cyber Security
  • Capture Attack
  • Smartphone Geolocation
  • Smartphone Botnet

Further information is available at our program website.
