Our daily life, economic prosperity, and national security depend on a safe and resilient cyberspace. As the use of digital systems becomes increasingly pervasive, the security of the cyberspace is often tightly coupled with the physical world, and has profound impacts on the security and safety of the society. Security and privacy research is a cross-cutting science that involves not only all layers of the computing stack, but also other disciplines such as human factors, systems engineering, and economics.

Research in this area includes:

  • Machine Learning and AI in Security
  • Darkweb and Cybercrime Ecosystem
  • Programming Language and Software Security
  • Distributed Systems Security
  • Industrial Systems Security
  • Web Privacy and Security
  • Hardware Security
  • Game-Theoretic Security
  • Privacy & Confidentiality
  • System Security
  • Data Center Security
  • Digital Forensics
  • Cryptography
  • Trusted Computing
  • Network Security
  • Healthcare Security
  • Technology Policy
