Organization profile

Cyber technologies are critical in modern society and include communication networks, hand-held computers, cloud computing environments and embedded computing technologies that are integrated into all modern automobiles, airplanes and military  systems. The Cybersecurity Research Center seeks to address ongoing and long-term future cybersecurity needs for protection and further economic development across the State of New Jersey, nationally and internationally. The center develops new methods for understanding how modern cyber systems can be compromised and fail, how to design cyber systems so they are secure, and how to improve or fix the cyber infrastructure that has already been deployed. Current areas of investigation to address these challenges include developing and applying new approaches to practical encryption, secure cloud-computing services, privacy technologies, improved software-engineering techniques, better data-encoding and communication protocols, and research on human factors. The center is primarily affiliated with the Ying Wu College of Computing, but is intended to be highly collaborative and inclusive, with the goal of including and supporting collaboration with researchers outside of the college and with researchers and practitioners outside of the university. The center is supported exclusively through external research funds, including from the U.S. Department of Defense and the National Science Foundation. Current collaborators include MIT, Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne, Raytheon and the U.S. Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command, among others.
