The Applications, Platforms and Systems Security Lab (apss) was established in 2018 at the Department of Computing at Imperial College London. We leverage a multitude of techniques to study mobility (localization, navigation etc.) and security aspects (confidentiality, integrity, authentication and authorization) in emerging application domains. In particular, we utilize access control, optimization, machine learning and natural language processing among others to tackle prevalent threats and challenges in an ever-connected world.
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
