Computer Security Reliability

Computer-based systems are increasingly embedded in every aspect of modern society – not just on your desktop or your phone, but in your car, in the factory, in power distribution systems, in everyday appliances, and more. The security and reliability of these systems is critical not only to guarding your personal information, but to human health and safety. While many researchers only look at the software aspects of security and reliability, Missouri S&T faculty also consider the underlying hardware that is core to these cyber-physical systems. Faculty study the computer networks, electromagnetic susceptibility of electronic systems, novel computer architectures, attack detection and resilience, fault tolerance, secure communications methods, and many others.
