Secure Computation Laboratory

Charles H. Knapp Associate Professor Marten van Dijk


Mission Statement

SCL is committed to solving foundational security problems and to advancing security research in general; SCL’s overarching focus is on making outsourced computation and storage safe for its users and on establishing privacy, integrity, and correctness of computation in strong adversarial models.

Research Directions

Our research primarily aims at creating provably secure computing and storage solutions which together can be used as a platform for trusted execution of application software. E.g., we work on secure processor architectures, embedded system security, secure cloud storage, key management, and more specific topics in hardware security such as Hardware Trojans, secure Supply Chain Management, and Physical Unclonable Functions for key storage and authentication.
