Research Group for Computer Security
Welcome to the website of the Computer Security Group at the Institute of Computer Science
at the University of Göttingen
The research group is concerned with all aspects of applied computer security, such as the detection of attacks, the analysis of malicious code, and the discovery of vulnerabilities. A special emphasis is put on the combination of computer security and machine learning, which allows for developing intelligent security systems that adapt to changing threats.
News and Updates
— We are attending the 36th IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy
in San Jose, California. Fabian presents our paper on inferring search patterns
for taint-style vulnerabilities in source code.
— Our group is running two new projects: The research project ABBO
deals with the detection of organized fraud in e-commerce and the project APT-Sweeper aims at detecting targeted attacks in email and web communication.
— We have started the research project INDI
. The project is concerned with detecting unknown and novel attacks in industrial networks (e.g. in power plants). It is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research
with 1.6 Mio. Euro.
— The winter term finally started! We are offering the following courses: Introduction to Computer Security
(lecture) and Intrusion and Malware Detection
— We are happy to report that Prof. Rieck is a recipient of this year's Google Faculty Research Awards
! Google is supporting our research on modeling and finding vulnerabilities in binary code graph with a gift of $83,000.
