Abstract

The Singapore Management University (SMU) has announced today the establishment of a new centre of research excellence that focuses on mobile computing security. Funded by Singapore’s National Research Foundation (NRF), the Secure Mobile Centre is developing efficient and scalable technologies and solutions that strengthen the security of mobile computing systems, applications and services. The Secure Mobile Centre is led by a team of five faculty members from SMU’s School of Information Systems who specialise in information security and trust: Professor Robert DENG (Centre Director), Professor PANG Hwee Hwa, Associate Professor LI Yingjiu, Associate Professor DING Xuhua and Assistant Professor Debin GAO. Through the new centre, they will conduct R&D projects that target three key aspects of mobile computing – 1) mobility, 2) connectivity, and 3) extensibility. Primary research areas include: fortifying mobile platforms with a user-centric trust anchor; analysing, detecting, containing mobile malware; systems for scalable access control of encrypted data in untrusted servers; and secure and usable authentication systems in mobile computing.
