The center will engage in various research activities, including long-term research projects, doctoral education projects, collaboration activities within the center and with external partners, short-term projects and research visits and exchanges.
During 2019, the center initiated four research projects and recruited four doctoral students. Additionally, two research projects started in 2020. The center’s focus areas within research is on cyber defense and information security. Traditionally, cyber defense refers to the body of technologies, processes and practices that protect networks, devices, programs and data from attack, damage or unauthorized access.
The research areas also include the technologies, processes and practices designed for attack, subversion and damage. Information security, by contrast, addresses organisational and societal aspects such as the risk to operations (including mission, functions, reputation), assets, organisations, and society due to unauthorized access, use, disclosure, disruption, modification, or destruction of information and/or information systems.
Currently ongoing research projects:
- Machine learning for computer network operations
- Attack simulations for defence systems
- Secure IoT orchestration
- Cyber situational awareness
- Post-quantum cryptography
- Provably secure systems.
