Benjamin E. Ujcich


I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Georgetown University working on secure systems and network design research. I am a member of the Department’s SecLab, where we investigate information assurance and computer and network security challenges.


My research interests span the systems and networking realm. In particular, I am interested in securing future networking architectures such as intent-based networking (IBN), 5G security, 6G/next-gen networking security, software-defined networking (SDN), programmable control planes, programmable data planes (e.g., OpenFlow and P4), and network operating systems. I am also interested in applications of data provenance for systems and networks.

Please see my research projects, teaching, and CV for more information.
