The mission of the Laboratory of Security Engineering for Future Computing (SEFCOM) at Arizona State University is to make significant impact to our society through innovative research projects, assurable development, and hands-on training programs in the areas of cyberspace security and defense. Current research interests include identity management and access control, formal models for computer security, network and distributed systems security including mobile and cloud computing, vulnerability and risk assessment and cyber crime analysis among others.
- To be one of the leading research laboratories in cyberspace security and defense.
- To collaborate with other institutions, government agencies, and industrial organizations to advance the state of cyberspace security and defense.
