Students on our ARL project, Adithya and Akhil, won second prize at the CERIAS poster award competition. This was held (virtually, like everything else these days) as part of the CERIAS annual symposium. CERIAS is the university’s security center and has been running for 25+ years. The work is part of a project on security in embedded systems and this specific poster is on a protocol for consensus that is energy efficient and uses the characteristics of the wireless network. Work done with Aniket (Kate; Purdue CS) and Mike (Reiter; UNC CS).
