Description 

Associate Professor Min Wu (ECE/UMIACS) has been awarded an NSF grant for "Forensic Hash for Assured Cyber-Based Sensing and Communications." This grant provides $344K support over three years. The objective of this research is to address the challenge in trustworthy sensing and communications, as content-rich audio-visual streams become increasingly adapted on-the-fly for individual receivers. The proposed project develops a novel framework of Forensic Hash for Information Assurance. Offering more forensic answers about data integrity, origin, and processing history in higher accuracy and efficiency, the proposed framework overcomes the current one-size-fit-all dilemma and enables trust assessment at a higher level.
