Information Hiding Based on Trusted Computing System Design

Faculty 

Funding Agency 

Air Force Office of Scientific Research

Description 

Associate Professors Gang Qu (ECE/ISR) and Min Wu (ECE/UMIACS) have received a grant from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) for research on information hiding based trusted computing system design. Qu is principal investigator (PI) and Wu is co-PI for this 3-year $450K effort that aims at enhancing the trust in systems designed and implemented by untrusted parties. The research investigates a novel information hiding framework based on constraint manipulation techniques to facilitate the verification of the non-existence of undesired functionality in the system.
