Mission Research on pragmatic security and privacy defenses

PragSec stands for "Pragmatic Security." In the PragSec lab, we work on a wide range of exciting research areas including:

  • Large scale measurement studies to assess the security and privacy of the web;
  • Client-side defense mechanisms that protect users against multiple threats without relying on external help;
  • Understanding and defending against abuse at the Domain Name System;
  • Studying underground economies and identifying points of intervention.
