  • Overview

    This Statement of Work covers the need for the services of a college student to provide technical and/or analytical support in the field of Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, or Computer Engineering for the Cyber Forensics in Converged Networks project. The purpose of this project is to develop a Unified Communications (UC) Cyber Forensic Framework, including novel forensic tools and methods to conduct live cyber forensic investigations. This project will explore forensics in UC applications to assist network investigators to identify actual intrusions, collect more and better evidence, reduce analysis time, and help to stop attacks against the UC network.


    • Designing a forensic tool using statistical signal processing approaches to enable faster response and more structured investigations of network attacks. Exploring how attacks against a converged network can be detected in order to provide a more secure Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) system. For the purpose of intrusion detection in UC, this approach can be based on stream entropy estimation, second order statistics, dimensionality reduction and similar statistical signal processing methods. The resulting tool is expected to improve the speed of detection and to reduce the complexity of the algorithms without compromising performance.  
    • Reviewing, analyzing and documenting specific operational procedures, and/or performing feasibility studies.
    • Performing data conversion and coding, and/or data analysis and data reduction.



    Minimum Qualifications:  


    Graduate Level 1:  Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, or Computer Science major (working on Master’s degree)


    Required Course Work: 


    • Network/Data Security: Design of secure systems, Internet and database security. Security implementation on Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) networks. Wireless Networks security.
