The goal of the Secure Systems research group is to create new technologies and design and analysis methods for the development of secure computing and communication systems. The new technologies should be, at the same time, secure, easy to use, and inexpensive to deploy. As is typical for security research, our results also include the discovery of novel attacks and previously unknown classes of vulnerabilities in existing systems. Security against malicious attacks is a basic requirement for all network-connected services and products, and scientific research can provide both fundamental understanding of the security issues and practical solutions that enable product development.
- November 19: The IEEE Computer Society Publications Board has awarded the 2019 Best Paper Award to SSG alumni Jian Liu’s “Scalable Byzantine Consensus via Hardware-Assisted Secret Sharing,” paper published on IEEE Transactions on Computers. The paper presents FastBFT, a fast consensus algorithm that can be used by blockchains. Congratulations to Jian Liu and Asokan!
- November 1: MSc Thomas Nyman will defend his doctoral dissertation “Toward Hardware-assisted Run-time Protection” on November 10.
