Funded Cybersecurity Higher Education
Graduated students have knowledge of:
- security issues in system-level software including weaknesses and defenses;
- static and dynamic analysis techniques for software (benign and malicious) ;
- modern scalable computer and network architecture;
- secure software development for modern, highly parallel computer systems
Top five research themes (maximum):
- Security of data in distributed processing environments (e.g. Health Records exchange)
- Digital forensics and visual analytics (e.g. fighting child abuse).
- Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT), tools and methods, sampling Internet flow data, etc.
- Online monitoring and surveillance on social media (with police), e-discovery (FIOD, NFI, Fox-IT), author profiling and recognition
(Inter)national opportunities for cyber security research:
- EU security call: Criminal cases become international and large scale: Research on high performance computing and networking, semi-interactive large-scale filtering, distributed investigation.
- National opportunities: The NFI-UvA collaboration.
Any other comment about the role of Dutch CS research worthwhile mentioning to the international audience:
- Search and analysis methods for both image, text and video award winning in international benchmarking competitions.
- Extensive informal collaboration networks with private partners and international teams.
