System Security Lab

Welcome to System Security Lab.


Our research interest is to improve the security level of all types of computer systems around us.

Computer systems consist of hardware, operating systems, compilers, applications (such as browsers, database, games, etc.). With our deep knowledge of these components, all of us are striving to develop optimized and practical security techniques.

System security is a promising research topic. All new technology, including BigData, Machine Learning, Unmanned Vehicles, and etc., cannot survive without guaranteed security. Note that conventional security techniques, such as antivirus programs, are only able to cope with legacy attacks like malware. For fundamental security enhancement, it is necessary to re-build/design the entire system from hardware to software. That's why industry and academia are looking for system security guys.

By joining in this laboratory and researching system security, students will be able to learn deep and broad knowledge on operating system designs, compiler techniques, hardware techniques, and so on. Welcome self-motivated and passionate students!


On-going projects:

  • Analysis on technique of accessing and acquiring user data in smartphone

  • Tracability assurance technology development for full lifecycle data safety of cloud edge

  • Study on analysis frameworks for TrustZone
