Our world relies on the security of sophisticated and interconnected computer systems, the sheer complexity of these systems, and the unclear security assurances that their different layers provide. In particular, security depends on the complex interactions between the different layers that build up our computer systems. Focusing on single layers and making inaccurate assumptions about other layers leads to many of the security vulnerabilities we see today.
Lamarr Security Research strives to rethink how computer systems are built, connected, and interact to create technology layers that are usable, verifiable, and efficient. It is necessary to perform open research on novel technologies to enable trust in order to create a world where data security and privacy are a matter of course. Lamarr Security Research works on bridging the current gaps between the layers by conducting research from hardware to humans. We work on understanding today’s security issues to rethink how the computer systems of the future are to be built.
