On-campus summer research opportunities in Security and Systems

March 4th, 2010

Professor Kuperman is looking for students interested in doing paid, on-campus research work in CS this summer. Funding is for 8-10 weeks of work, up to 40 hours per week, with some flexibility as to scheduling.

I have 3 different projects I’ll be working on this summer. They are all systems or security related:

1. Testing and releasing a security monitoring tool as an open-source project

2. Refining an isolated virtual network lab environment for the security course

3. Network measurement and troubleshooting (in conjunction w. Case Western)

Useful background could include C/systems programming, Linux/Unix experience, Python programming, shell scripting, security topics, system administration, and/or computer networking. Each project has different needs, and you only need a subset of these topics and motivation to learn more to be able to help.

If you are interested in any of these projects send me an email (Benjamin.Kuperman@oberlin.edu) letting me know which projects you are interested in and your relevant background. Also email me if you have questions or just want more info. Graduating seniors are eligible to participate.
