|Research Areas -> Software Systems -> 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. As another example, research in data privacy and security focuses on several specific problems: (1) Privacy-preserving data publishing: Many organizations (e.g., departments of public health) publish data for research purposes. In doing so, it is important to protect the identities of individuals, as well as other sensitive information. How can we do this, while maintaining the utility of the data for various kinds of research? (2) 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?|
