The Center for Information Networking and Telecommunications (CINT) is an interdisciplinary research center dedicated to training the current and future generations of cybersecurity professionals. Our mission contributes to enhancing the security and resilience of the nation’s critical information infrastructure and the internet by developing and delivering new technologies, tools, techniques; mitigate and secure current and future systems, networks and infrastructure against cyberattacks; conduct and support technology transition and lead and coordinate research and development.
The Center for Information Networking and Telecommunications (CINT) focuses on research and development in the fields of network security, mobile networks, sensor, and ad-hoc networks, Cloud and information networks, multi-media, multi-service, integrated wired/wireless networks, multi-media, multi-service, integrated wired/wireless networks, secure communications, and information distribution networks. These research and educational activities have been funded by government agencies and industries including the US Army, National Science Foundation (NSF), Telcordia (formerly Bellcore), Panasonic, NY State, NY Department of Transportation, and AT&T.
The Center's present research work on telecommunications and information distribution has been largely supported by the U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) by way of the "ARL Collaborative Technology Alliance on Communications and Networks" (approximately $2.5 million, eight-year contract). CINT research aims to enhance the mobile communications environment on the battlefield.
The Center is justly proud of more than thirty Ph.D. students who have earned their degrees over approximately thirty years of research cooperation. All have substantially contributed to the advancement of the telecommunications specialty with their dissertation research and now hold leadership positions in industry and academia.
