Rice Computer Security Lab

Rice University

Rice’s Computer Security Lab started in 1998 when Dan Wallach joined Rice University’s Department of Computer Science. Our work has considered a variety of topics in computer security: web and smartphones, peer-to-peer networking, electronic voting systems, and we are also actively engaged in the policy side of security issues. We collaborate widely, as computer security issues have broad impact well beyond traditional computer science.

The Computer Security Lab at Rice University is interested in a variety of security and privacy topics. The Lab’s previous work has focused on censorship measurements on Sina Weibo, in China, and on Twitter, in Turkey. The Lab is also very interested in the behaviors of advertising networks, which involves data collection as well as static code analysis and virtual machine sandboxing.
