The Cyber Security Research group is investigating fundamental systems problems rooted in practical application domains.
Digital infrastructures are based on efficient, scalable, transparent, and secure distributed systems. Key digital services in a modern society like, for instance, electricity, finance, defense, surveillance, public services, e-commerce, social networking, collaboration, and video streaming are all using reliable and available distributed systems to provide their services. Public cloud platforms from Amazon, Google, and Microsoft are examples of large-scale distributed systems being used 24/7 to provide vital services to millions, if not billions, of users.
We are adressing fundamental distributed system problems. Our mission is fostering a principled approach to the design and and development of trustworthy and efficient distributed systems, and to educate our students to master the complexity when developing this type of systems with inherent conflicting non-functional properties.
We address non-trivial challenges from the real world that require a fundamental inter-disciplinary research approach to solve. We have brought together disciplines as disparate as computer science and engineering, applied mathematics and statistics, business, biology, ethics, and law, and integrate academic fundamentals with real-world engagement and innovations.
We focus on contributing to the application of digital technology and artificial intelligence in disparate domains as clinical medicine, elite athlete performanc development, and financial fraud.
