Security and Privacy

Carnegie Mellon boasts one of the largest university-based security research and education centers in the world, and our faculty work in all areas of security: software security, network security, formal methods, threat analysis and modeling, cryptography, business risk assessment and economic implications, and usable privacy and security.

Our efforts come together in CyLab, a unique multidisciplinary, university-wide organization devoted to computer security research. CyLab draws its more than 50 faculty and 130 grad students from six colleges. Current interdisciplinary CyLab research thrusts include trustworthy computing platforms and devices; next-generation secure and available networks; mobility; security of cyber-physical systems; secure home computing; survivable distributed systems and outsourced services; and privacy protection.
