The Cyber-Physical Systems Security Lab (CSL), headed by Professor Selcuk Uluagac, is located within the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Florida International University in Miami, Florida, USA. In CSL, we primarily work on research problems at the intersection of the cybersecurity and networking fields with an emphasis on their practical and applied aspects. We design, build and analyze novel real-world systems, algorithms, and tools. The ultimate goal of our efforts in the CSL is to make today’s and tomorrow’s digital infrastructure and our lives more secure against malicious activities.  Currently, the CSL conducts research activities in the following areas:

  • Security of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), Internet of Things (IoT):
    • e.g., fingerprinting, covert-channels, information leakage,
  • Security of critical infrastructure networks (e.g., SCADA systems, smart-grid):
    • e.g., analyzing critical infrastructure network traffic,
  • Malware
    • Cryptojacking, ransomware,
  • Wireless and mobile devices security:
    • e.g., wireless device fingerprinting, covert-channels,
  • Big data security:
    • e.g., applying machine learning and big data analytics methods in security.
