The Applications, Platforms and Systems Security (APSS) research group was established in 2018 at the Department of Computing at Imperial College London. We conduct research work in core systems and mobile computing with a focus on security and privacy aspects (confidentiality, integrity, authentication and authorization).
Our work focuses on three main research thrusts:
- Authentication, Authorization and Access Control: Study of effective and efficient authentication, authorization and access control mechanisms.
- Mobile Device and IoT Systems Security: Study of adversarial capabilities and development of novel defense strategies for smartphone and IoT systems.
- Security and Privacy in Machine Learning and CPS: Study on the security and privacy of machine learning models and other applications in IoT and cyber-physical systems.
Director: Dr. Soteris Demetriou
