The System Security Lab is part of the Computer Science Department of The University of Texas at San Antonio.


The mission our lab is to to discover and identify new vulnerabilities, threats and cyber-attacks against existing and future computing facilities. We develop new security techniques to mitigate the security problems in computer systems and networks. Our ongoing projects include the development of new architectures to enable privacy protection in cloud computing. We are also working on security problems related to virtual machine placement in clouds.
