Security and Privacy

Security is a topic that affects all software systems. For example, network security and OS security are some of current topics under active investigation including prevention of host and network infection, detection and mitigation of malware, and detection and removal of wired and mobile botnets. User interaction with computing systems is another focus, including social networks and personal computing systems. One area of particular interest is security in embedded systems. As another example of problems we study, consider fine-grained enterprise policy enforcement: Often, organizations develop expressive high-level policies governing access to their data. How can we enforce these policies efficiently at the level of the database?
