Several Ph.D. and M. Sc. scholarships are available to conduct research on distributed monitoring. This research is part of a major research partnership between NSERC, MDA Corporation and the Computer Security Laboratory (CSL) of the Concordia Institute for Information Systems Engineering (CIISE), Concordia University. The project pertains to the domain of distributed execution monitoring. The goal of this initiative includes research contribution objectives in these areas: 1) data exchange protocols; 2) distributed monitoring algorithms; 3) analysis of monitored data; 4) monitoring architecture and design; 5) concept validation through real-life case studies. The planned research involves a great balance between theory and practice. The Computer Security Laboratory is a center for innovative research in information systems security. It is funded by several provincial and federal granting agencies as well as industrial corporations and governmental organizations. It hosts a critical mass of professors and Ph.D./M. Sc. students working on several IT security research themes such as security hardening, security assessment, network security, cyber forensics, cryptography, multimedia security, privacy, etc.
