System Security

Welcome to the System Security research group at CISPA. We are an enthusiastic research team that explores software and network security topics. In particular, we study (i) cyber attack countermeasures (e.g., malware defenses, amplification DDoS mitigation, attack attributions/tracebacks), (ii) network security (e.g., software/hardware co-designs for reliable traffic attribution, traffic analysis on encrypted network communication), and (iii) OS/software security (e.g., microarchitectural side channels, compiler-assisted software security, cryptocurrency implementations). We place a particular focus on foundational research that can be easily transferred to practical applications and remediations.
