Computing devices, whether they be an individual work station or embedded as a part of another system, may have vulnerabilities that lead to the compromise of data. Our research group focuses on developing methods and process for detecting, improving, and protecting systems from compromise. This encompasses a broad range of topics, such as investigating the causes of compromise, developing new communications protocols, and finding techniques to integrate security across hardware, software, and network interfaces.

Research areas of interest include:

  • System security across networked, cloud-based, embedded and Internet of Things devices
  • Cryptography and quantum cryptography
  • Host, network, and device security
