Security and Privacy

Threat analysis, database privacy, and mobile device security


We study various aspects of security related to computer systems. This includes the design of secure systems; the usability, evaluation, and certification of security products; the robustness of digital watermarking algorithms; threat analysis for open networks; and database privacy. In addition, we work on making mobile devices even more secure than they are today.
