Create a trustworthy information-system environment.



The continued growth of organized cybercrime, the deeper alignment of business and IT, the rapid adoption of social networking tools and cloud-based services, and the blurring boundary between personal and work life, all make security harder to understand yet increasingly important to everyone.

We are applying knowledge of mathematics, modeling, systems and security to enable safe participation in the online world. We are doing this in two ways:

  • creating new ways of thinking about security
  • designing and building infrastructure and tools




We focus on the hard challenges of:

  • understanding cyber-risk
  • how to model threats, security resources, controls and outcomes
  • how to deal with sophisticated attacks
  • discovering what is in place and how to automate security policy
  • building trusted infrastructures
  • what to monitor and how to address assurance and privacy


Director: Martin Sadler
