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.

Trust management.

Network protocols and distributed algorithms
