Malware and Network Security Research

Members of the Malware and Network Security team analyse the use of malware and its requisite network forensic footprint. It ranges from detection of malware using network traffic to analyses of typical network monitoring setups, such as Security Operations Centres. This also involves sandboxing and digital forensic analysis of malware, with customised local testing infrastructure. This is in collaboration with corporations and institutions, to ensure a practical impact for the team’s research.
