Researchers in the University of Michigan's Computer Science and Engineering division focus on a broad array of security-related research areas, along with related topics of privacy and formal methods in security.

In computer security, research activities include web security, electronic voting, medical device security, using virtual machines for building security services, security in mobile systems, and detection of insider attacks and spyware, and malware capture and analysis tools. In network security, research activities include measurements of attacks on the Internet, detection and dismantling of Botnets, security of routing infrastructure, and censorship resistance. We also have a strong interest in the design of techniques to enhance user privacy. Work in this area includes anonymous communications, privacy policy enforcement infrastructures for pervasive systems, database support for privacy-preserving queries, and privacy policy language design.
