The following research groups conduct academic research primarily in cybersecurity and privacy:

Secure Systems Groups (Aalto University and University of Helsinki): The goal of the Secure Systems research group is to create new technologies and design and analysis methods for the development of secure computing and communication systems. The new technologies should be, at the same time, secure, easy to use, and inexpensive to deploy.

The Ambient Intelligence research group (Aalto University) is working towards usable security solutions by integrating Pervasive Sensing into security protocols for smart objects. These technologies can provide spontaneous, implicitly secure interaction.

Cryptography research group (Aalto University) is interested in the foundations of cryptography and the application of principled theory to practical security problems such as software security. We enjoy diversity of thought and each of us has their own interests and a different background in addition to cryptography, e.g., complexity theory, verification, algebra and logics.


Secure Systems annual Demo Days

Every year we organize a “Demo Day” together with the Secure Systems research groups at Aalto University and the University of Helsinki to showcase our work during the previous 12-month period. The event is intended to bring local academia and industry together and give them an overview of information security research going on in Finland’s capital area. The event is also an excellent opportunity for students and researchers to network and search for open positions within the local infosec industry and academia.

Secure Systems Demo Day 2024 will be organized on June 17!
