Berkeley International Computer Science Institute (ICSI)

University of California Berkeley

ICSI is a non-profit center for research in computer science, with close ties to the University of California, Berkeley, where Prof. Paxson serves on the faculty. ICSI’s Networking and Security Group, led by Prof. Paxson, focuses on understanding the behavior, use, and abuse of today’s Internet, and on exploring new technology, designs, and defenses for tomorrow’s Internet.

Active projects at ICSI include measurement and analysis of censorship deployments, policies, and technologies; exploration of circumvention mechanisms; formulating abstract models relevant to analyzing censorship/circumvention arms races; characterizing and defending against nation-state surveillance of political opponents; and assessing the presence of mass monitoring of network traffic.
