Survivable Computing Infrastructure
Distinguished Service Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering Department
The Survivable Computing Infrastructure Core is an environment where researchers design advanced network and computer infrastructure components that continue to provide reliable service despite being under active attack. Such systems are designed to survive by being resilient rather than defensive, reacting to threats and adapting their operation to survive attacks that would otherwise overwhelm their resources. As society becomes increasingly dependent on information technology, a survivable computing infrastructure is critical to enable essential services to continue despite terrorism, sabotage, information warfare or natural disaster.
