In an increasingly interconnected world dependent on technology, two George Washington University researchers are developing a way to keep computer systems safer from would-be hackers with a new approach that would eliminate security loopholes before they can be exploited.

Tian Lan and Guru Venkataramani, associate professors of electrical and computer engineering in the School of Engineering and Applied Science, were recently awarded a $1,471,224 grant by the Office of Naval Research to study how customized software packages could individualize security in cyber systems by customizing their protocols. This would reduce security risks and foster a more resilient system.
