Better Security Parameters

Electrical and Computer Engineering Associate Professor Yunsi Fei was awarded a $522K NSF Grant to create “A Unified Statistics-Based Framework for Side-Channel Attack Analysis and Security Evaluation of Cryptosystems”.

Dr. Fei received her BS and MS in Electronic Engineering from Tsinghua University in China, and her Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Harvard. She is also the director of NUEESS, the Northeastern University Energy-Efficient and Secure Systems Lab.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency created by Congress in 1950 “to promote the progress of science; to advance the national health, prosperity, and welfare; to secure the national defense”. With an annual budget of $7.2 billion (FY 2014), it is the funding source for approximately 24 percent of all federally supported basic research conducted by America’s colleges and universities. In many fields such as mathematics, computer science and the social sciences, NSF is the major source of federal backing.
