Dr. Sumit Ghosh who presently serves as the chair of the Computer Science Department at The University of Texas at Tyler. He is the recipient of the 2004 IEEE Computer Society's Technical Achievement Award. He is the Principal Investigator of a proposal on "Organic Semiconductor Modeling and Simulation," that has been funded by US Senate and US House of Representatives under Special Appropriations through the US Army Research Lab. He received his B.Tech. degree from the Indian Institute of Technology at Kanpur (India), and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from Stanford University, CA. Sumit has held the title of Thomas E. Hattrick Endowed Chaired Professor of Information Systems Engineering in the ECE Department at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, New Jersey; served as the associate chairman for research and graduate programs in the Computer Science and Engineering Department at Arizona State University; been on the faculty of Computer Engineering at Brown University, Providence, RI; served as Member of Technical Staff at Bell Labs Research (Area 11) in Holmdel, NJ; and worked as Member of the Technical Staff at Fairchild Advanced Research and Development Labs in Palo Alto, CA.
He is the primary author of 5 reference books: Hardware Description Languages: Concepts and Principles (IEEE Press); Modeling and Asynchronous Distributed Simulation of Complex Systems (IEEE Press); Intelligent Transportation Systems: New Principles and Architectures (CRC Press); Principles of Secure Network Systems Design (Springer-Verlag); and Algorithm Design for Networked Information Technology Systems: Principles and Applications (Springer-Verlag). He has co-edited the book titled, Guarding Your Business: A Management Approach to Security (Kluwer). He is currently co-editing a book titled, "Cybercrimes," with a former Asst. US Attorney of the US Department of Justice and is completing his sixth reference book for Springer-Verlag that will present the discipline of networking from an entirely new perspective and provide new research directions. He has written 95+ transactions/journal papers and 100+ refereed conference papers. New Jersey Business Magazine Online: Current Issue: New Jersey Business, 5 July 2003 [cached]
Sumit Ghosh, at Stevens Institute of Technology, Hoboken, also believes there are cyber-risks.He is the Thomas E. Hattrick Professor of Information Systems Engineering in the Deparment of Electrical and Computer Engineering and also serves as the director of the computer engineering program at Stevens.He founded the Secure Network Systems Design Laboratory (SENDLAB) at the institute.Among his other creditials, he is the architect of the Graduate Certificate Program in Secure Network Systems Design.Even with the best computer protection, Ghosh talks about what could happen.
"Intrusion dection systems that are out in the industry can detect certain standard attacks," he says, "but if somebody is devising and launching very unique attacks, that people are not even testing for, then there is no chance that those attacks can be detected.
As an important note, Ghosh says that 90 percent of all computer attacks are essentially insider attacks, meaning they are committed by someone who knows a system very thoroughly, is able to by-pass all the controls and attack a machine at its most vulnerable spot.He adds that these are the most difficult attacks to understand and address scientifically.
"We don't have any scientific principles that can guide us to detect these kinds of scenarios.And that, again, is a very important research problem," he says.
Speaking in broader terms about history and such timeless problems as spies, Ghosh says, "I don't think we can look back into our own history and say, "There's a solution and let's use it now."

Sumit Ghosh named Associate VP for Education & Research by the Society for Modeling & Simulation International
In July, Dr. Sumit Ghosh, the Hattrick Chair Professor of Information Systems Engineering at Stevens Institute of Technology, was appointed Associate Vice President for Research and Education by the Society for Modeling and Simulation International (SMSI).
"The overarching vision," said Ghosh, "is to educate every engineer, regardless of specialization, in modeling and simulation, which we believe is the key to the future.This position will help me to work towards that goal.
"By providing fast, precise, and fatigue-free computational intelligence," he continued, "computers have enabled the development of reasonably accurate models of real-world systems and the execution of simulations that closely mimic reality.
"Pedagogically," said Ghosh, "this endeavor will signal a new beginning in tapping the computer's unlimited potential for the benefit of all.
