Computer Science—the theory, representation, processing, communication and use of information—is fundamentally transforming every aspect of human endeavor. The Department of Computer Science at Iowa State University advances computational and information sciences through; 1. educational and research programs within and beyond the university; 2. active engagement to help define national and international research, and 3. educational agendas, and sustained commitment to graduating leaders for academia, industry and government.

History
The Computer Science Department was officially established in 1969, with Robert Stewart serving as the founding Department Chair. Faculty were composed of joint appointments with Mathematics, Statistics, and Electrical Engineering. In 1969, the building which now houses the Computer Science department, then simply called the Computer Science building, was completed. Later it was named Atanasoff Hall. Throughout the 1980s to present, the department expanded and developed its teaching and research agendas to cover many areas of computing.

Abstract

Popularity of peer-to-peer (P2P) networks exposed a number of security vulnerabilities. Among those is a problem of finding reliable communication partners. In this thesis, we present an integrated trust framework for peer-to-peer networks that quantifies the trustworthiness of a peer via reputation-based trust mechanism and anomaly detection techniques. As opposed to other known techniques in P2P networks, our trust management schema is fully decentralized and does not rely on the co-operation of peers. Furthermore, the reputation computation is based on traffic coming from other peers. We also describe an anomaly detection procedure that analyses peer activity on the network and flags potentially malicious behavior by detecting deviation from peer profile. We present integration of our anomaly detection to trust management scheme and study the performance of reputation-based approach using implementation and performance of trust framework through simulation.
