IUB CSE Assistant Professor Dr. Razib Hayat Khan won the Best presenter award at this year’s IEEE World AI IoT Congress, 2022. The program was held from June 6-9, 2022, at Seattle, USA. He got the recognition for his peer-reviewed paper, presented online during the conference, titled: Razib Hayat Khan, Jonayet Miah, "Performance evaluation of a new one-time password (OTP) scheme using stochastic petri nets (SPN)." Bearing the shortcomings of the existing OTP system, the authors develop a method where the user will perform a certain intermediate mathematical calculation before using the OTP received by the smart phone and thus, incorporates an extra layer of security in the existing OTP system. This extra layer of security protects the method from usual security attacks whether the channel used for transferring OTP is compromised or not. This new method of OTP has noticeable improvements in performance over the existing system and puts no extra burden in the server-side verification process.
More than 100 papers from 50 countries were presented at the conference. The program was co-sponsored by the IEEE USA and IEEE Region 1. All papers in the conference were expected to be indexed in IEEE Xplore, Scopus, Google Scholar, etc. This conference promotes an intense dialogue between academia and industry to bridge the gap between academic research, industry initiatives, and governmental policies. This is fostered through panel discussions, keynotes, and industry exhibits where academia is exposed to state-of-practice and results from trials and interoperability experiments. The industry in turn benefits by exposure to leading-edge research in networking as well as the opportunity to communicate with academic researchers regarding practical problems that require further research.
