We are looking for some good undergraduate students to work with us on some networking and security related projects. Through the project, the students will get hand-on experience of network traffic measurement and analysis on the real Internet, like the PlanetLab testbed (http://www.planet-lab.org/), or the Northwestern campus routers. The students may also get exposure to the real Internet attack data collected from worldwide. Such research experience will be very valuable when the students are on the job market or apply for grad schools.
These projects will be supported by a Murphy Society Grant and the prestigious Microsoft Trustworthy Computing Grant. The pay rate depends on the student's experience. In addition, each undergrad can take a 399 course with Prof. Chen. It will help achieve the honored degree of Computer Science. We've had very successful experience with the undergrad who worked with us since Prof. Chen was doing his Ph.D. at U. C. Berkeley. In Northwestern, one undergrad (Elliot Pearson) already has paper published with us, and the other one (Aaron Beach) has paper under submission. For more examples, check out http://www.cs.northwestern.edu/~ychen/resume.html#mentor.
If interested, please contact Prof. Yan Chen.
