Secure and Resilient Systems

About

Our research directly contributes to creating modern information systems, networks and infrastructures. These are dependable and secure in all aspects.

The Secure and Resilient Systems group investigates fundamental concepts, development techniques, models, architectures and mechanisms that directly contribute to creating modern information systems, networks and infrastructures that are dependable and secure in all aspects. Such systems need to be resilient to malicious attacks and accidental faults to deliver services that can be justifiably trusted by their stakeholders. Our group research combines a rigorous theoretical approach to requirements and design with a coherent framework for practical system operation so that fault and attack tolerance is available at the component, system, systems of systems, network and socio-environment levels. As the security of such systems is largely impacted by the decisions of human users, our group investigates the science of security including human factors as well.
