The group performs research in many areas of applied IT security (fundamental and systems research). Our research roadmap is structured around the landscape of cybercrime with its three main groups of actors (attackers, users and investigators) and their main activities and deficits: attack and evasion for attackers, awareness and education for victims, evidence extraction and analysis for investigators, as depicted in the following image.

More details on our research can be found in the short paper Mapping the Landscape of Cybercrime, published at the 1st SysSec Workshop held in Amsterdam on July 6, 2011, and can be found on the subpages of this page.
