Computer Security is concerned with designing mechanisms for protecting computers and networks from attacks, keeping information confidential and safe from tampering, preventing unauthorized access to resources, and providing robust security to various applications including e-commerce transactions. Research areas investigated by our faculty include but are not limited to Intrusion Prevention and Detection, Malware Propagation Modeling and Analysis, Security of Wireless Networks, Sensor Networks and Vehicular Ad hoc Networks, Authentication Protocols, and Cloud Security.
Digital Forensics addresses the problem of recovering evidence (e.g., to be used in court) from computers, mobile devices, or any storage media that may hold data in binary form.
