An organization of academics and industry leaders released a report today that provides guidance on how to build security and privacy protections into the emerging internet of things (IoT). The report emphasizes several recommendations for internet-connected devices, ranging from improved procedures for updating software on those devices to ensuring that those devices can continue to function if internet access is disrupted.
Researchers including scientists from Princeton University have developed a system that greatly simplifies the task of managing the software switches used to control traffic across a network. Called Protocol-Independent Switch or PISCES, the new system allows managers to adjust and customize their software switches quickly without sacrificing speed or efficiency.
Researchers have found that the “Great Firewall” technology that controls internet traffic entering and leaving China is not merely an apparatus that statically blocks traffic. It also actively sends probes across the internet, preemptively searching for internet infrastructure and services that seek to circumvent its defenses. “The Great Firewall is actively trying to find these sites so it can block them,” said Nick Feamster, a professor of computer science at Prince
Jennifer Rexford, chair of the Department of Computer Science, has been named the 2016-2017 Athena Lecturer by the Association for Computing Machinery, the largest professional society in computing research and education. The award recognizes female researchers who have made fundamental contributions to computer science.
Researchers at Princeton University's Edge Lab are leading a global effort -- with scientists and business leaders at ARM, Cisco, Dell, Intel and Microsoft -- to develop an important new mobile technology: fog networks.
Computer scientists have developed a method to cut dramatically the time needed to find patterns in large collections of information such as social networks.
Most term papers are evaluated by one or two people, but Carlee Joe-Wong's will be checked by hundreds. The paper, completed in 2010, has evolved into a research project involving wireless operators like AT&T and 1,000 participating wireless customers
Mung Chiang, a Princeton University engineering professor who uses innovative mathematical analysis to simplify and strengthen the design of wireless networks, has been awarded the National Science Foundation's highest honor for young researchers, the Alan T. Waterman Award.
A team of Princeton University researchers has released a plan to provide a simple solution to many of the problems associated with the tangle of patches that has characterized the growth of the Internet.
Mung Chiang, an electrical engineering professor at Princeton, has been awarded the 2012 Kiyo Tomiyasu Award by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
Princeton electrical engineering professor Mung Chiang introduced the undergraduate class "Networks: Friends, Money and Bytes" to examine the common foundation governing the networks that wind throughout modern life. A key part of the coursework is a two-week mini-project.
Mung Chiang and his team are using a miniaturized version of the global communications network, dubbed the EDGE Lab, to develop new ideas and systems that will help ensure that the networking infrastructure of the future will meet consumer demand.
A sociologist, a political scientist and two electrical engineers, each a Princeton faculty member with expertise in different types of social and technological networks, have received a grant of $1.1 million to study the relations between these networks.
The U.S. Department of Defense has selected Princeton engineers to lead two new multi-institutional research initiatives, one aimed at transforming wireless telecommunications networks and the other at inventing materials that adapt themselves to changing loads and environments.
A method invented at Princeton for dramatically improving web access in developing nations has been named one of "10 emerging technologies" for 2009 by Technology Review magazine.
Princeton computer science and technology policy experts are playing key roles in a new Google-backed project intent on illuminating the mysterious inner workings of Internet traffic.
Mung Chiang, a Princeton engineering professor who studies the communications networks integral to modern society, has received a 2007 Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers from the White House.
At the Wednesday, November 15 Lunch 'n Learn seminar, Computer Science Professor and Chair Larry Peterson discussed PlanetLab, an open platform for developing, deploying, and accessing planetary scale internet services.
