Welcome to the Information  Security Research Group

The Information Security Research Group, which was formally set up in 2006, is a constituent part of the University College London, Department of Computer Science (UCL-CS).  Our research addresses key technical aspects of information security and privacy - such as cryptography and system security.  At the same time, we work  with colleagues in Software Systems Engineering and Systems and Networks to deliver end-to-end security solutions, and address broader human, economic and societal aspects of security, privacy and trust.  We also support consultancy and develop and delivers advanced training in our areas of expertise.

Some of the key research themes addressed by the group include:

  • Anonymity
  • Authenticity
  • Availability
  • Digital Rights Management
  • Identity Management
  • Information Security Management
  • Information Hiding
  • Privacy
  • Trust
  • Cryptanalysis
  • Computer Security: defenses against malware
  • Reliability
  • Human Aspects of Security
  • Watermarking
  • Steganography and Steganalysis

The Information Security Research Group plays a key role in the newly established Science of Cyber Security Research Institute, the UCL Centre for Security and Crime Science, the UCL Academic Centre of Excellence in Cyber Security Research  and the UCL SECReT Doctoral Training Centre, which offers 4-year PhD studentships!
