Liu and Torng awarded NSF Grant

Alex Liu,Assistant Professor of Computer Science and Engineering, and Eric Torng, Associate Professor of Computer Science and Engineering, have been awarded a research grant from the National Science Foundation for the project titled "Grammar Aware High-Speed Application Protocol Parsing for Deep Flow Inspection".

Application protocol parsing, the translation of raw packet flows into higher level flows of semantic content, is the foundation and enabler of a wide variety of current and future networking services such as network security, application-aware load balancing, content-aware networking, and vulnerability based signature checking. The objective of this project is to develop a comprehensive framework for high-speed application protocol parsing and field extraction that is grounded in formal language theory models.
