Research Projects

Our center is currently supporting the following externally funded projects with our collaborators:

  • NSF Theory and Practice of Cryptosystems Secure Against Subversion (2018 - present)
    • Collaborators: UConn, JHU, VCU
    • This project aims to systematically study cryptography against subversion to lay down its scientific foundation, and to leverage architectural tools to harden existing secure protocols.
  • NSF in-toto (2018 - present)
    • Collaborators: NYU
    • This project seeks to secure the software development and distribution supply chain.
  • AFRL: B2CSM (2019 - present)
    • Collaborators: UTSA
    • This project aims to provide a study and prototype implementation of blockchain based cybersecurity management systems.
  • Google Faculty Research Award (2019 - present)
    • Collaborators: VCU, Google
    • This project aims to study secure multiparty computation in the face of malicious implementations.
  • DARPA YFA MARSHAL (2017 - present)
    • This project is developing new approaches to port open source libraries to new systems environments.
  • Sloan Foundation REVET (2017 - present)
    • Collaborators: MIT, University of Michigan
    • This project is developing a prototype application of advanced cryptography for computing on social science data.
  • NSF Improving Android Security with Dynamic Slicing (2016 - present)
    • Collaborators: UC Riverside
    • This project focuses on dynamic slicing for Android and security applications of slicing.
  • DARPA SafeWare PALISADE (2015 - present)
    • Collaborators: MIT, UCSD, Raytheon BBN Technologies
    • This project is providing the first-ever implementations of cryptographically secure program obfuscation techniques.
  • The NJIT Secure Computing Initiative (funded by NSF) (2016 - present)
  • Army Research Lab, MACRO: Models for Enabling Continuous Reconfigurability of Secure Missions (2013 - present)

Our center has also supported the past externally funded projects since our founding in 2014:
