Cyber & Electromagnetic Domain Security

Institute applied research in this core competency involves developing measures in the cyber and electromagnetic domains to protect a computer or computer systems against unauthorized access or attack, encompassing both traditional computers and networks as well as other system/infrastructure embedded-computers and subsystems. Research applies a variety of statistical and artificial intelligence.

Argus Cyber Security Laboratory

The Argus Cyber Security Laboratory, founded by Dr. Xinming (Simon) Ou in 2006, focuses on the defense aspect of the cyber space, and its philosophy is to start from real problems, and create solutions that last. Its research attempts to address the root causes of the various cybersecurity problems, and by working closely with industry to ensure its work both addresses the most pressing problems of the time, and provides the scientific basis for solutions that can stand the test of time.

Current Projects
Some current projects of the Argus lab include the following: Analytical Forensics, Android Security, and Secure Real-Time OS

Software Releases
The following are some software applications created by the Argus Lab:

Argus-SAF: Argus-SAF is a Static Analysis Framework that was built in house to do security vetting for Android applications. It integrats two previously developed products Argus-Jawa and Argus-Amandroid, and has the capability to perform comprehensive, efficient and highly precise Inter-component Data Flow Analysis.

ANCOR: Moving Target Defense for Cloud-Based IT Systems (MTD CBITS) is a platform that automatically adapts multiple aspects of the network’s logical and physical configuration. The platform is targeting a cloud infrastructure and is built on top of ANCOR. ANCOR is a framework for creating and managing cloud-based IT systems using a high-level abstraction (an up-to-date IT system inventory).
