Computer security research focuses on cryptography, trust, privacy and information survivability issues such as threat modeling, intrusion detection, assessment and recovery in networked computers and wireless networks. Assessment of performance, reliability, availability, and security is a key step in the design, analysis, and redesign of computer systems.
