The mission of our FSSL (FullStack Security Lab) at Syracuse University is to understand and improve the security of emerging web services and off-the-shelf hardware products in novel and deployed application scenarios. Our research method is usually a combination of protocol analysis, program analysis, real-world measurement, cost-effective defense, and other designs that can be put in a large-scale practical use.
