I am interested in computer networking and security. Given the significance of the Internet in our economy and society, I am interested in improvements and studies that can have a real-world impact. My recent work has focused on how to make both enterprise and residential networks more secure. In my research work, I am exploring ways to change the traditional computer network communication model using techniques such as software-defined networking and network function virtualization.
I am interested in exploring future directions in computing from a systems, networking, and security standpoint. For example, how will the Internet of Things or the Bring Your Own Device phenomena affect future networks? What will this mean for network provisioning and security? I am interested in working on projects, theses, and dissertations in these directions.
I love teaching computer science and security at WPI. Our students are enthusiastic about mastering the technical details of systems, networks, and software, making it a thrill to work with them. I have previously worked with students in extra-curricular settings, including as an advisor for the WPI Cyber Security Club and as the coach for the WPI Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition Team.
Professional Highlights & Honors
Craig Shue, associate professor of computer science and cybersecurity, contributed his thoughts in a Wall Street Journal point-counterpoint opinion piece, “Should Cities Ever Pay Ransom to Hackers?” Shue’s position: “YES: Sometimes, the Benefits of Paying a Ransom Outweigh the Costs."
Time interviewed Associate Computer Science Professor Craig Shue for its article (10th graph), “FaceApp Is Getting People to Age Overnight. Here's What You Should Know About Its Security Concern.” “It’s all about your tolerance for risk,” Shue told Time. “In this case the user is giving third party company a very high-quality image of themselves that they can do what they want with.”
