This paper will be written to provide research for your CYSE 492/493 Senior Design project.  The paper should provide an opportunity for individual students to further understand/document the problem provided in CYSE 492/493 and to evaluate research and methods in design alternatives/technologies for the given problem.  There will be several students in each group in CYSE 492/493.  As much as possible, students should write papers on different aspects of the Senior Design project.  The instructor for CYSE 492/493 and this course will review the required annotated outline to ensure that the papers are sufficiently different.


Preliminary research will include reading articles from refereed journals (representative journals listed below), Internet browsing, interviews with experts and any other fact gathering technique which will provide you with information regarding your topic.


Research Paper Description

The research paper should follow the following outline.


  1. Overview of Senior Design Project (review your CYSE 492/493 project)
  2. My Research Area for this Paper and the Project: (Include how what you are researching and how it will contribute to the project)
  3. Design Alternatives/TechnologiesIntroduction: (Give an overview of the researched alternatives/technologies)
  4. Current Status of the Technologies(What are the current research results and conclusions regarding the technology?) Provide a critical evaluation of the results. (What do the results tell us about the research questions/hypotheses?) Provide a review of how the technology is currently being used.
  5. Technology Extension (What are the future directions for the technology?)
  6. Practical Contribution of the Technology(How would you rate the overall contribution of the technology to the area of Cyber Security Engineering?)
  7. Conclusion
  8. Technology Paper Evaluation (Describe the contribution of this research paper to you and the course. How would you improve this semester project?)


You should explain everything in your own words and your discussion should be understandable to someone who is not familiar with the topic!  Do not assume that your reader is aware of the design alternatives/technologies.  Therefore, make the effort to succinctly introduce basic concepts and ideas.Be sure to explicitly inform the reader  how your results support your decisions concerning the technology


This paper should be on design alternatives/technologies, 5 pages long, using IEEE format.  IEEE format will be reviewed in a lecture by the Engineering Librarian, Theresa Calcagno and is postedin the Resource Section of our Blackboard class.


Each student is requested to select at least tworefereed journal articlesregarding their chosen design alternatives/technologiesthat have been published after 2010 as references.  Each journal article should be selected from one of the recommended refereed journals listed below or another refereed journal that covers the topics listed below.  The two articles should not be from the same journal.  The journal article needs to provide a theoretical advancement, an innovative implementation or application, or both.  It is most probable that you will have many more references however two are required.
