Dr. Wayne Patterson Shared What Hath WikiLeaks Wrought?

Reporting:  Rabbit Zielke

Guest speaker Dr. Wayne Patterson spoke to the Computer Science Department of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga about events surrounding and following the WikiLeaks release of classified documents in late 2010.  Much of his presentation centered on the impact of distributed denial of service attacks that resulted in knocking PayPal, Master Card, and other corporate websites temporarily off-line.  Dr. Patterson is the Director of the Howard University Cybersecurity Research Center.

This presentation was the first in a series of guest speakers hosted by the Computer Science Department of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.  Coming up Friday, February 25th Dr. Idris Rai will be discussing Size-based Scheduling in Internet Systems.
