Research Assistant (Graduate/Undergraduate) - CIS - Multiagent and Cooperative Reasoning (MACR) Lab

June 26, 2015

Research Assistant

The Multiagent and Cooperative Reasoning (MACR) Lab is hiring undergraduate/graduate research assistant(s) for the “Understanding and quantifying the impact of moving target defenses on computer networks”, a 5 year, $1M project funded by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research.

The goal of this research is to understand and quantify the potential and limitations of moving target (MTD) systems to protect computer networks. To achieve this goal, we are developing a fully functional prototype MTD system that automatically adapts various aspects of the network's logical and physical configuration. The prototype is targeted at cloud infrastructures. Currently we are leveraging our private OpenStack enterprise-level deployment.

As part of the research, we will use our prototype in a series of experiments designed to answer key research questions such as how an MTD system's effect can be measured, what are the key parameters of an MTD system, whether an MTD system can feasibly adapt multiple configuration aspects to thwart specific threats, and whether an adaptation triggered by attack/risk indicators can be more effective than an MTD with randomly selected adaptations.

Research assistants will develop and maintain the prototype MTD system and help carry out experiments with the system. Research assistants will be expected to work 20 hours a week with a highly competitive salary.

Highly Preferred Qualifications:
• Ruby on Rails

Additional Qualifications:
• Experience with configuration management tools (e.g., Puppet)
• Cloud Infrastructures (e.g., OpenStack)

Send a cover letter clearly describing your relevant experience, resume, and computer science related course history (including grades) to Dr. Scott DeLoach at sdeloach@ksu.edu. Applications will be reviewed starting August 1, 2015 and will continue until the position(s) is filled.
