Description

Leader of the group Computer Security: Marten van Dijk.

The Computer Security group contributes to making our society a safe place with digital and physical infrastructures that can be trusted to have the best interest of citizens and industry in mind. Our work constructively contributes new mechanisms and solutions to security problems.

We are committed to bringing rigorous cryptographic style thinking to security engineering. We study, analyze, and design secure computing environments from various perspectives such as secure processor architectures and cyber physical system security but also secure machine learning functionalities. We provide a holistic approach and use various techniques for reasoning about security, safety, and resilience ranging from formal methods to cryptographic proofs.

Cum laude for new method making parallel programming easier

Cum laude for new method making parallel programming easier

Due to the increase of multicore processors used in smart phones, game consoles and other computers, parallel programming has become increasingly important. To prevent software errors, concurrent calculations must always exactly be executed in the correct order. This is not easy, because existing programming techniques for enforcing such orders - interaction protocols - are very hard to use. PhD student Sung-Shik Jongmans of Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica and Leiden University investigated a new programming method to simplify this.
