Associate Professor Sennur Ulukus (ECE/ISR) received a new National Science Foundation (NSF) grant for her wireless security research, titled "Secure Capacity of Wireless Networks."

The three-year award is a joint grant with Prof. Aylin Yener of Penn State University. This is Prof. Ulukus' second joint NSF grant with Prof. Yener on wireless security. Their previous NSF grant, titled "Multiuser Wireless Security," was granted in 2005.

This project takes an information theoretic approach to provide guarantees on information security and information reliability for wireless networks. The results of this project will help identify fundamental design trade-offs for capacity versus security for a variety of wireless networks, and will provide design principles for future wireless communication systems achieving the secure capacity limits.
