A paper authored by four researchers from the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department – graduate student Kekai Hu, former graduate student Harikrishnan Chandrikakutty, and Professors Russell Tessier and Tilman Wolf – won the Best Paper Award at the First Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Conference on Communications and Network Security. The paper is entitled “Scalable Hardware Monitors to Protect Network Processors from Data Plane Attacks.” The conference had 141 paper...

Dr. Tilman Wolf of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department is the co-author of a new textbook, Architecture of Network Systems published by Morgan Kaufmann, which has been called “the most comprehensive book on network systems” published to date. As Wolf explains, “Basically, you would read our book in order to understand how to design the devices that make the Internet work.”
