Details Current work includes:
  • Content-Based Access Control: CBAC enables bloggers and social networkers to specify simple access-control policies that can be applied automatically to future posts, photographs.
  • Static Analysis for Security: Develop tools to help programmers write better software.
  • Secure Mobile Commerce: Cell-phones will soon replace credit cards in point-of-sale transactions. We propose an architecture for enabling secure commerce on an otherwise untrusted platform.
  • Usable Password Management: We are developing a usable web password manager based on the principle that "a secure user interface should not only make doing the right thing easy, it should make doing the wrong thing hard."
