Secure communication and computing (`cyber') group
The security of communication networks and computing (`cyber') is a fascinating and important challenge, combining many disciplines and techniques. The areas studied in the secure communication and computing (`cyber') group include:
Network security, esp. Internet protocols: TCP/IP, DNS, routing, Denial-of-Service, spam
Applied - yet provable - cryptography, esp., resiliency (to exposures, cryptanalysis, side-channels)
Privacy, anonymity and covert communication, including defenses and attacks (e.g., on Tor).
Cyber-security, mainly: Malware communication and detection.
Usable security and social-engineering attacks, incl. phishing
Financial cryptography, i.e., using cryptography to innovate financial systems.
Network protocols and distributed algorithms
