Cybersecurity and Privacy

Designing armor for enterprise systems.



The teams active in this research area work on design methods, technologies, and tools that positively influence both the theory and practice of cybersecurity and privacy, spanning the whole range of needs created by digital technologies.


This team’s research and innovation efforts cover the following five themes:

  • Trustworthy data management: This team works on maintaining the long-term integrity of data; protecting both data and computations on the cloud; optimizing protections for data in the light of regulatory concerns; and providing new data controls for openness and transparency

  • Privacy by design: The marquee project under this theme tries to balance utility and privacy by allowing the data principal to choose between the two. Another project tries to move these concerns to an earlier stage in the SDLC, making it easier to guarantee software that respects privacy and privacy regulations

  • Access control, authentication, and authorization: This team works to address access control limitations, while also devising ways to protect newer mechanisms that implement access control in a scalable manner

  • Combating internal threats: This research group works on detecting and eliminating internal threats that target system vulnerabilities and risks

  • Security of cyber-physical systems: This team works on resolving the security and privacy issues faced by devices that do not have a traditional interface and hence cannot employ the same protections as other machines
