Dr. Riccardo Bettati, professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, has been appointed director of the Center for Information Assurance and Security (CIAS).
CIAS has been designated as a Center for Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education and Research by the National Security Agency. Faculty members, researchers and students of CIAS focus on a broad spectrum of issues involved in the expansion and protection of information and communications infrastructure systems.
Bettati’s research focuses on distributed real-time and embedded systems. This includes the study of scheduling algorithms, schedulability analysis, resource access protocols, establishment protocols, the appropriate operating system support and middleware, and the overall design principles necessary to effectively realize and deploy such systems. His work also extends into the areas of privacy preservation and generally confidential communication, in traditional internetworks and in pervasive communication settings.
