Nadia Heninger Receives 2017 NSF CAREER Award

Nadia Heninger, Magerman Term Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer and Information Science, has been selected to receive a 2017 NSF CAREER Award for her proposal, "Cryptographic Security at Internet Scale."

This award is the NSF's most prestigious award in support of junior faculty who exemplify the role of teacher-scholars through outstanding research, excellent education and the integration of education and research within the context of the mission of their organizations.

The goal of Heninger's CAREER Award is to perform an empirical study of cryptographic deployments on a global scale and to develop a framework for experimental cryptographic security research. The project also yields fundamental new insights and deepens the understanding of cryptographic deployments in the real world. Its main activities include analyzing large-scale cryptographic datasets, real-time cryptographic anomaly detection, advancements in the state of high-performance computing for cryptanalysis, and the development of more precise security models and requirements for cryptographic systems.
