Texas A&M-Commerce Professor Jim Kim has received a $48,000 award from the Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute.

The assistant professor of Computer Science and Information Systems was recognized for his research on Machine Learning Models for Network Traffic Anomaly Analysis. The award will further research efforts to develop algorithms and techniques for the identification of anomalous states in network traffic-based clustered patterns.

"Cyber-attacks have become more prevalent and evolved with greater intelligence and impacts," Kim said. "Just weeks ago, for instance, we experienced a massive distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack that slowed access to popular services including Twitter and Spotify, and it is expected that DDoS attacks will be more prevalent with the rise of the new type of botnets comprising IoT devices."

Kim said a new monitoring methodology is essential to helping network administrators determine whether the network is in a normal state and much the network state has been changed.

"Our goal is to offer a framework to enable effective network monitoring with the new concept of ‘clustered patterns’ that is based on machine learning techniques, to detect anomalous activities in an intuitive way," Kim said."
