Presentation

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:

Current activities

Within the general areas mentioned above, our current resarch interests are:
trusted-computing
where we have relevant work in the areas of remote attestation and software development (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".
automatic generation of cryptographic code
...
You can also have a look at the list of the funded projects where we are (or were) involved.
