RESEARCH SCOPE

Today's world's societies are becoming more and more dependent on open networks such as the Internet - where commercial activities, business transactions and government services are realized. This has led to the fast development of new cyber threats and numerous information security issues which are exploited by cyber criminals. The inability to provide trusted secure services in contemporary computer network technologies has a tremendous socio-economic impact on global enterprises as well as individuals.

In Computer Systems Security Group (CSSG) we strongly believe that the next-generation computer systems require proper protection, therefore, we focus on developing cutting-edge, innovative cyber security solutions.

Our main research topics include:

  • Network Security
  • Honeypot Systems
  • Malware Analysis
  • Information Hiding in Communication Networks
  • Internet of Things (IoT) Security
  • Industrial Control Systems Security (SCADA/PLC)
  • Bio-inspired Cyber Security

We do our best to contribute to the abovementioned fields.
