I have several research interests in Computer Security, sepcifically but not exclusively:
Basically I am interested in what can go wrong and where, and whether it is possible to predict a failure and then protect the system under attack.
I am developing a model of autonomic security protection; feedback loops from software and statistical sampling
in order to create a self protecting system.
Perhaps this will be the M5 of the security world, and not surprisingly there are many concerns, caveats and controls and the future is cloudy.
I have had several PhD students but those working in security related topics include:
Some of my Computer Security related research papers:
What’s The Premes behind your Pattern (PLOP 2015)
Intelligent Biological Security Testing Agents (IEEE SERE 12)
Thinking Towards a Pattern Language for Predicate Based Encryption Crypto-Systems (IEEE SERE 12)
E-voting in an AmI world: Trust, privacy and social implications (Social Science Computer Review 2008)
Agent Testing in an Ambient World (PTI-AI06 Workshop on Privacy, Trust and Identity Issues for Ambient Intelligence in Pervasive 2006 Workshop)
Electronic Voting in the UK: Current Trends in Deployment, Requirements and Technologies (Third International Conference on PST 2005)
