Cybersecurity and Privacy
The amount of sensitive information kept and communicated digitally is rising at an exponential rate. This brings along serious threats to the security and privacy of sensitive personal information. ECE Faculty are at the forefront of research in improving the security and privacy of the infrastructure. Our cybersecurity research includes, assurance of security of hardware platforms used in personal computing, e.g. mobile as well as in cloud platforms, assurance in cyberphysical systems, and securing cryptographic algorithms.
