The Center supports faculty research projects in various technical areas that impact computer related crime, including projects in network security, wireless networking, privacy, social networking and mobile device security. The Center supports Ph.D. and graduate student research assistants who work on these projects and provides equipment and funds for travel and dissemination of research project results. Two projects the Center contributed to recently are the SWAN Lab, a secure wireless radio project, and NIMO , an effort that examines crime in mobile networks. The Center also partnered with NYU Polytechnic University in its NSF Sponsored FORNET project, which looked at ways of building forensic capabilities into networks. The Center has also provided support for software and hardware needed in the Digital Forensics and Cyber Security Program’s main computer lab, which is use for both instruction and research.
