His work is primarily focused on the network identity at many different
layers of abstraction. This work directly relates to his auxiliary work
in security education, network testbeds, network integrity modeling, and
Tom focuses on:
- Graph Spectral Methods for Network Investigation An NSF-funded project to use graph spectral methods to process network evidence for investigation and response to attacks. DILON: Detecting Intrusions at Layer ONe
- Monitor Placement for Network Attack Attribution
- XenWorlds: Hypervisor-based Virtual Networks for Education
- Clark-Wilson-based Integrity Models for Networks
- NetBottle: Environment Modeling and Traffic Generation for Network Security Testbeds
He earned his B.S. in Computer Science at Southwest Missouri State University in 1995, his M.S. in Computer Science at Purdue University in 1999, and his Ph.D. in Computer Science at Purdue University in 2002. He did his graduate work initially in the Computer Operations, Audit, and Security Technology (COAST) Lab and then in the Center for Education and Research in Information Assurance and Security (CERIAS). He was the 2003 Digital Forensic Research Workshop Forensic Feud Contest Champion.
