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.
Testbed: COSMOS Interconnecting Continents (COSMIC)
A team formed of Columbia University (Lead), CUNY CCNY, University of Arizona, and Rutgers University has won the NSF Grant (for three years Starting October 1, 2020) to establish a global Internet Testbed.
This COSMOS Interconnecting Continents (COSMIC) project proposes to develop capabilities that will enhance unique multi-technology and software defined wireless, optical, and edge cloud network testbed infrastructure to perform groundbreaking international collaborative experiments.
The aim of the project is to connect various global testbeds into one Global Internet testbed COSMIC that’s composed of the following testbeds; COSMOS, ORBIT, testbeds’ interfaces with the PEERING and FABRIC testbeds and adding connections to leading testbeds worldwide, including CPQD (Brazil), Kyutech U./StarBED (Japan) to CCNY, OneLab/NITOS (EU/Greece), and CONNECT and Pervasive Nation at Trinity College Dublin (EU/Ireland).
Grove School receives NSF grant to ensure Internet safety for cyber attacks
Researchers from The City College of New York received a grant from the National Science Foundation to explore advanced resilient Internet architectures. The grant is in partnership with the Kuytech Institute in Japan and additional support from the Japanese Science Foundation.
The grant focuses on addressing research challenges associated with enabling trustworthy networks supporting the Internet of Things (IoT). The grant runs for three years and will cultivate a wider scholar exchange program between Kyutech and CCNY building on cooperation that already exists between the two institutions.
