CyLab Co-Director Honored
Virgil Gligor, the co-director of Carnegie Mellon CyLab and professor of electrical and computer engineering, received the Outstanding Innovation Award for computer privacy and security expertise at the annual meeting of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) in Chicago. The ACM has more than 100,000 members in 190 countries.
The ACM's Special Interest Group on Security, Audit and Control recognized Gligor for innovations in secure operating, covert channel analysis, intrusion detection and secure wireless sensor networks.
Gligor's approach includes creating trusted paths beyond logins, verifying input/output legitimacy, establishing accountability and recovery, and securing sender/receiver compliance. Over the past 29 years, his research interests have ranged from access control mechanisms and denial-of-service protection to cryptographic protocols and applied cryptography.
