Projects

The Key Management Project:

We are interested here in key management as a support mechanism for authentications and access control. Additionally we consider specifications of access control policies for data sharing environments.

The Healthcare-as-a-Service Project:

Mobile health services offer flexible access to patient data that is stored locally
on a mobile phone. The storage capacity limitations of mobile devices however,
make storing complete copies of the data, on the device, challenging to achieve.
Proposed solutions suggest using backup cloud storage as a support mechanism. In
this project we look at issues revolving around efficient cloud storage, data security
and privacy.

Project Members:


The Social Network Project:

Social networks offer a flexible platform for inter-user communications but are particularly vulnerable to transitive disclosures of information. In this project we
consider issues of privacy and security in this regard.

The Crime Project:

Reported crime data is privacy sensitive. In regions where law enforcement authori-
ties do not have the required expertise to handle crime data mining locally, possible
solution routes include transferring the data to a third party data mining service
provider as a cost-effective data analytics strategy. In this project, we consider the
notion of K-anonymity and the intricacies of applying this approach to generating
privacy preserving crime data.

Smart Power Grids:

Here we are interested in how one might design smart power grids efficiently.
