Geoffrey M. Voelker and his colleagues at MSR Beijing, including CSE Ph.D alumnus, He “Lonnie” Liu, won the USENIX Test of Time award at NSDI in Boston, MA this week for their work on Sora: High Performance Software Radio using General Purpose Multicore Processors. This was the first purely software-based WiFi radio platform running on a PC. The award is given for work at least a decade prior that has had a lasting impact on the field. Voelker received his first Test of Time award at USENIX Security in 2017 for his denial of service attacks research.
