NSA grant awarded to design curriculum on intelligent secure systems
Dr. Leon Reznik, Professor of Computer Science, was recently awarded a grant from the National Security Agency to fund the development of a novel collegiate level course on Intelligent security systems.
The goal of this course is to further develop knowledge, as well as research and practical skills, in application of intelligent systems in computer security. It will continue education in artificial intelligence area as well as introduce its application into the development of computer security tools and systems.
The course idea is innovative and unique; merging together various diverse knowledge areas such as artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques and computer security systems and applications. It will review different application areas such as intrusion detection and monitoring systems, access control and biological authentication, firewalls structure and design and introduce students into the current state of intelligent methodologies in computer security and information assurance systems design.
