My name is Eric Eilertson, I am currently a computer science PhD. candidate at the University of Minnesota working with Professor Vipin Kumar at the Army High Performance Computing Research Center. My main research interest is network intrusion detection, specifically detecting and tracking the sophisticated, and often state-sponsored, hacker. The last four years I have been leading a group in the creation of MINDS (Minnesota INtrusion Detection System) which is jointly funded by the Army Research Laboratory (ARL), and National Science Foundation. Also I have been working with the ARL in Adelphi, Maryland designing and deploying America's next generation cyber defense system.
Here are just a few of the presentations I have done on the subject of network security.
November 2004, presentation at the 2004 Army Science Conference on MINDS: A new Approach to the Information Security Process.
June 2004, spoke at DoD High Performance Computing Users Group Conference on Data Mining Based Intrusion Detection
June 2003, spoke at the DoD High Performance Computing Users Group Conference on Parallel Frequent Pattern Mining for Network Intrusion Detection.
I was also involved in writing a book chapter.
