About Me

I am an associate professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, an affiliate faculty of Computer Science, and faculty of the Advanced Digital Sciences Center. I am a member of the Coordinated Science Laboratory and the Information Trust Institute. I joined the University of Illinois in August 2005; previously I was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of California, Berkeley under Doug Tygar. I received my Ph.D. in 2003 from the Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University while I was a Visiting Graduate Student in the Computer Science Department at Rice University; my advisor throughout graduate school was Dave Johnson. I received my B.S. Magna Cum Laude in 1997 in Computer Science and Mathematics from the University of Washington.

My current research interests are in network security and wireless networks. My general research interests are in security and systems, with emphasis on the areas of secure systems and mobile communications. I have published papers in the areas of secure Internet routing, DDoS-resiliant forwarding, secure routing in wireless ad hoc networks, security and anonymity in peer-to-peer networks, efficient cryptographic mechanisms for routing security, and the design and evaluation of multihop wireless network routing protocols, including Quality-of-Service mechanisms for ad hoc networks.

Research Interests

My research interests are generally in the areas of networking, security, and wireless networks. I have worked in a number of areas in these spaces, some of which are described here.

Insider Wireless Attacks

Much of security in wireless networks has been predecated on the idea that outsiders do not know keys or codes. In this research area, we developed protocols for Medium Access and broadcast in environments with insider adversaries.

Network Security Mechanisms

I developed numerous mechanisms for securing routing, origin and path authentication, and efficient algorithms for hash chains.

Vehicular Safety Networks

Vehicles can avoid accidents through the use of short-range (< 1km) position and velocity reporting. My work includes modeling, simulation, performance evaluation, and security evaluation.

DDoS Defense

The Internet was designed to allow traffic from any sender to reach any destination. Compromised PCs and IoT devices has led to the ability to flood servers with traffic, knocking them offline. I have developed numerous protocols that allow servers to selectively receive traffic.

Energy Impacts of Wireless

Energy Denial-of-Service is a difficult attack in battery-powered devices. I am exploring ways to join wireless charging with data communication to shift the energy burden onto the requestor, eliminating energy DoS. I've also explored using energy limits to mitigate an energy-limited jammer.

Ad Hoc Networks

Ad hoc networks route traffic over multiple hops from one host to another to expand the range of a wireless signal. I helped develop numerous features in the Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) protocol, as well as security mechanisms for ad hoc network routing. I also developed a secure protocol from the ground up.

Train Security

Trains pose an interesting security environment: devices are expensive, old, and often cannot be easily retrofit. They also operate in dedicated infrastructure, which can provide distinct wireless properties.

Medical Security

Explored the same-body detection problem, where two devices will share a key if they are on the same body. I'm generally interested in security issues in health care, especially in the US primary care delivery environment.
