Computer and Network Security Group
The TORSEC group performs research in the fields of computer and network security.
It is established within the Dipartimento di Automatica e Informatica
of the Politecnico di Torino.
The group's activity is mainly concerned with - but not restricted to -
the following topics:
- computer security (trusted and trustworthy computing, platform and data privacy)
electronic identity, user authentication/authorization and identity management
design and optimization of network shields (by means of firewalls and secure channels, such as VPN or TLS/SSL)
electronic commerce (Internet and mobile payment systems)
system security (risk analysis, security planning and audit, intrusion detection and tracing, forensics analysis)
Within the general areas mentioned above, our current resarch interests are:
You can also have a look at the list of the
funded projects where we are (or were) involved.
where we have relevant work in the areas of
(the Trusted Platform Agent (TPA) library
and our porting of TrouSerS for Windows);
security policy and ontology
where we have defined an ontology for virtualized systems;
firewall optimization and automatic security configuration
- current network complexity is such that manual configuration and optimization is scarcely (if at all) feasible, thus we are working at automatic systems for performing these tasks; some of our most important results are given in the papers
"Network-level access control policy analysis and transformation",
"Automatic (re)configuration of IT systems for dependability", and
"Security plans for SaaS".
