Wu and Qu Awarded Air Force Research Grant

Associate Professors Min Wu (ECE/UMIACS) and Gang Qu (ECE/UMIACS)

Min Wu
have received a grant from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) for research on novel applications of data hiding in computer programs. Wu is principal investigator (PI) and Qu is co-PI for this 3-year $300k effort that aims at building high-performance trusted computing platforms.

Performance and security are two of the most important design requirements for

Gang Qu
computing systems that carry out critical defense and commercial missions. This research effort investigates the building of a High-Performance Trusted Computing Platform based on novel data hiding algorithms that embed information into compiled program binaries. The embedded data can be extracted during the program’s execution to facilitate the system in enhancing system-wide performance and providing trustworthy computing.

As a vital component of the Air Force Research Laboratory, the Air Force Office of Scientific Research manages the basic research investment for the U.S. Air Force. The AFOSR seeks to create revolutionary scientific breakthrough and produce world-class, militarily significant, and commercially valuable research outcome.
