Cyber Security

Our research focuses on the security of cyber space from all digital threats, whether malicious or not. Our multidisciplinary expertise contributes knowledge, understanding and innovation to the protection of critical infrastructures, users, their data and interests, and connects activities across electronic and software systems, advanced networking and protocols, risk behaviour, social and legal acceptability, and physical and cyber identity management.

Biometrics for access control

We offer a combined contribution of top researchers across 12 distinct research groups within the disciplines of Electronics and Computer Science, Law, Management, Mathematics, Optoelectronics and Psychology. Together we can deliver a wide spectrum of interwoven research ranging from electronic (nano) devices to (physical and cyber) biometrics, passing through world-leading research on cyber-enabling infrastructures, fibre-optics, internet and the web - using behavioural and cognitive psychology, and deploying both formal and experimental methods.
