One of the members of our development team, Yong Tang, recently received his doctorate from the University of Florida. Yong is in our SDK team under Sunbelt’s chief scientist Joe Wells, working on the CounterSpy BorderPatrol SDK, which is used by gateway appliance vendors to stop spyware at the network perimeter.
His doctoral dissertation is apt — it’s on “Defending against Internet Worms”:
In the first part of the dissertation, we propose a distributed anti-worm architecture (DAW) that automatically slows down or even halts the worm propagation….In the second part of the dissertation, we propose a defense system that is able to detect new worms that were not seen before and, moreover, capture the attack packets.
You can read his excellent paper here.
Congratulations Dr. Tang!
