Software Systems Architecture and Security
IT systems have become an integral part of business and life. At the same time, these systems have become extremely complex, often hosting thousands of software applications, databases, operating systems, servers, processes, data, and more. We, the Software Systems Architecture and Security (SSAS) group, do research and education with the purpose of helping organisations with these large complex system-of-systems.
We conduct theoretical as well as applied research combining architecture modeling (e.g. threat modeling and enterprise architecture modeling) of software systems with novel approaches in cyber security analysis and statistical modeling (for instance attack simulations). The results serves as decision support for engineers maintaining and designing software systems.
We also do penetration testing (ethical hacking) of various systems.
