We are an information security research group at the Department of Computer Science at Aalto University, Espoo, Finland.

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.


  • June 13: Our annual event Secure Systems Demo Day to showcase the current research in information security opens on Tueday, June 15, at 15 with Janne Lindqvist’s opening talk. In the poster session we will have 22 presentations, 2 “coffee rooms” for discussions and 2 company desks. The event will end with informal get-together. Registration is open until the end of the event. Welcome!
  • May 22: Registration to Secure Systems Demo Day 2021 is open!
