Security focuses on distributed computer applications and the underlying communication mechanisms. While the measurement and modeling of network traffic is essential to the design of new algorithms and protocols, security appears to be an emerging component of this activity through the capture and analysis of malicious behavior and the design of new countermeasures both for the distributed software applications and the communication system.
The research in the Security department focuses on four areas:
- Security Protocols and Applied Cryptography
- Software and Systems Security
- Distributed Systems
