Samsung funding for Cranfield

Two lecturers from the Centre for Electronic Warfare, Information and Cyber (EWIC) from Cranfield University’s School of Defence and Security, based at Shrivenham, Oxfordshire, have won funding from Samsung to develop a next generation monitoring and protection system for internet of things (IoT) enabled devices.

Often referred to as ‘smart’ devices the internet of things (IoT) describes the interconnection via the internet of computing devices embedded in everyday objects, enabling them to send and receive data. The scope of the project includes digital video cameras commonly employed for surveillance, smart home routers, smart watches, and temperature sensors connected to the internet.

Dr Paul Yoo, Lecturer in Security and Forensic Computing, and Dr Taufiq Asyhari, Lecturer in Networks and Communications, have been awarded $100,000 from the Samsung 2017 Global Research Outreach (GRO) Program.

Dr Yoo said: “This amazing recognition from Samsung brings together a diverse team of academics across data analytics, security and information theory.

Dr Asyhari added: “The problem we aim to address here is the capability of detecting anomalous behaviours in emerging IoT networks.

The award includes funding for one research student to work on exploring the patterns of dynamic networks based on IoT data.
