Awarded NSF grant to develop crowdsourced computer security

Dr. Kelly Caine (Clemson), Dr. Apu Kapadia (Indiana) and Dr. Michael Reiter (UNC Chapel Hill) have  been awarded $366,610 by the National Science Foundation to better understand the potential of crowdsourcing in computer security applications.

This research examines the concept of ‘crowdsourced security’ where the solution lies in people leveraging members of their community to secure their systems and devices. For more information, visit the NSF project page http://www.nsf.gov/awardsearch/showAward.do?AwardNumber=1228364
