Center for Cybersecurity

Laboratories Education Publications Funding Faculty

The Center for Cybersecurity (CCS) was established at SUNY, Stony Brook to advance research and education in cybersecurity. The research efforts are aimed at proactive cybersecurity, where security problems are addressed before they lead to exploitable vulnerabilities. It brings together faculty and students with research interests in computer and network security, software engineering, formal methods, programming languages and compilers, operating systems and databases that share the common goal of building secure and reliable information systems.

The six research laboratories associated with the center represent over six-thousand square feet of lab space. Over two dozen Ph.D. students and about an equal number of M.S. students are involved in security related research areas. Our research is supported by NSF, DARPA, ONR, Army Research, Airforce Research and NIST.

The center develops and coordinates courses and curricula in the broad area of information assurance. We take a comprehensive approach to IA education that leverages the strengths of our faculty in software assurance and formal methods, computer and network security, and databases.
