Congratulations to Liangxiao Xin*, David Starobinski** (ECE, SE) and Guevara Noubir*** for receiving the “Best Paper” award at the IEEE Conference on Communications and Network Security (IEEE CNS 2016) for their paper, Cascading DoS Attacks on Wi-Fi Networks!
The IEEE Conference on Communications and Network Security (CNS) is a conference series in IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) core conference portfolio and the only ComSoc conference focusing solely on cyber security. IEEE CNS is also a spin-off of IEEE INFOCOM, the premier ComSoc conference on networking. The goal of CNS is to provide an outstanding forum for cyber security researchers, practitioners, policy makers, and users to exchange ideas, techniques and tools, raise awareness, and share experience related to all practical and theoretical aspects of communications and network security.
Building on the success of the past three years’ conferences, IEEE CNS 2016 seeks original high-quality technical papers from academia, government, and industry. Topics of interest encompass all practical and theoretical aspects of communications and network security, all the way from the physical layer to the various network layers to the variety of applications reliant on a secure communication substrate.
*Liangxiao Xin is a third-year PhD student in the BU Division of Systems Engineering.
***Guevara Noubir is a Professor at Northeastern University, who shares an NSF SaTC Medium grant on Wi-Fi Security with Starobinski.
