Along with his role as an associate professor of computer science at A&M-Commerce, Dr. Jinoh Kim is an affiliate faculty scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) and a Silicon Valley Cybersecurity Institute (SVCSI) member. Before returning to academia, he was a senior researcher at ETRI, a national lab in Korea, working on broadband networking systems and security since 1991.

He transitioned to academia with a vision of innovative, in-depth research and learning in networking and security with talented students and colleagues in the open community. His research goal lies in providing greater reliability and predictability in networked systems with complex functionality and components, utilizing machine intelligence and algorithmic methodologies.

A Conversation with Dr. Kim

What has been your favorite course to teach?

I enjoy teaching networking and security courses in the Internet of Things (IoT) era with an ever-increasing number of devices and their connectivity. The networking course explores the concepts of network algorithms, protocols and architecture, with their rationale and intuitions to understand the complexity of modern computer networks. The security course focuses on the principles of security objectives and functions, with practical measures against emerging threats and vulnerabilities in the computing world with growing connectivity.

Tell us about a project you are currently working on or recently completed.

Our research group has explored security concerns in the 6G mobile communication setting with the University of Colorado Colorado Springs since 2021. We particularly focus on aerial base station security, which will be increasingly utilized in the new mobile communications settings, with two research challenges: (1) potential malware attacks against aerial base stations and (2) location integrity essential for mobile entities for accurate dispatch and placement. This project produced two journal articles (IEEE Transactions on Network and Service Management and IEEE Access) and three conference papers (including IEEE Big Data 2021 and IEEE Conference on Machine Learning and Applications 2023). Computer Science graduate student Chiho Kim received the first place award at the 17th annual Texas A&M University System (TAMUS) Pathways Student Research Symposium in 2022 with his work on this project.
