Focusing on Fundamentals Lands Professor Two Test of Time Awards

Two research papers published 15 years ago at the Annual Computer Security Applications Conference (ACSAC) earned prestigious test of time awards in December.

The publications were recognized by ACSAC for becoming a fundamental part of over 300 botnet and virtual machine research papers.

When he walked onto the stage to accept the awards, School of Cybersecurity and Privacy Professor Wenke Lee gave the same advice he had given his students 15 years prior in his Georgia Tech lab.

“Do something that you think is important and that you’re passionate about,” he said. “Push yourselves to think about things that are more fundamental.”
