Arpit Gupta's joint-paper, titled "AI/ML for Network Security: Emperor has no Clothes," received the Applied Networking Research Prize (ANRP) by the Internet Research Task Force (IRTF). This work has also been recognized as Best Paper Honorable Mention at ACM CCS in 2022. 

ANRP is a prestigious and competitive annual award that selects the top 2-3 papers published across established networking conferences, such as SIGCOMM, NSDI, and more. A central selection criteria is the work's applicability to real-world problems.

According to Professor Gupta, "My previous works (Sonata, SDX, iSDX) have been shortlisted for this award thrice, but [ultimately] weren't... selected. Given its recognition for real-world impact, receiving this award is one of the most gratifying experiences for me."
