Security & Privacy

Professors Yoshi Kohno and Franzi Roesner and students The Security and Privacy Lab at UW CSE pursues high-impact, innovative, and exciting computer security research. Our current research interests include security and privacy for embedded and cyber-physical systems, Web security, mobile device security, security and software engineering, operating system security, network security, anonymity, censorship, human-computer interaction and security, security education, and many other topics. In fact, we think that almost all aspects of computer science have interesting security-related twists.

Security and privacy research at UW CSE is highly collaborative, both within our group and with other research groups in the department. We also engage with the broader campus community through the interdisciplinary Tech Policy Lab, a partnership between UW CSE, the School of Law, the Information School, and other units on campus.

Our faculty and students have have received numerous awards for their research, and our work has helped to increase public awareness and to shape public policy on computer security and privacy issues.
