device fingerprinting

One focus of this research area is to explore and harness the ultimate limits of algorithmic techniques for solving hard computational problems, particularly on graphs. Pushing forward the theoretical foundations in this area will allow us to reap the rewards in practice many times over. On the other hand, the hardness of certain computational problems also forms the basis of cryptography as we know it today. 

Research Topics 


  Obfuscation means to make something difficult to understand. Programming code is often obfuscated to protect intellectual property or trade secrets, and to prevent an attacker from reverse engineering a proprietary software program.

Memory Safety

  Memory safety is the state of being protected from various software bugs and security vulnerabilities when dealing with memory access, such as buffer overflows and dangling pointers.

SW Fuzzing

  Fuzzing or fuzz testing is an automated software testing technique that involves providing invalid, unexpected, or random data as inputs to a computer program.
