The PurSec Lab at Purdue University is a group of researchers focusing on System Security Research.
We are actively looking for interns, PhD students, and Postdocs working in the area of System Security. Please contact us if you are interested.
We study how mobile applications authenticate their users to remote backend servers. In particular, we focus on passwordless authentication schemes, using Trusted Execution Environments, biometric sensors, and mobile messages.
We are studying how mobile applications currently use mobile messages to implement passwordless authentication schemes and the security implications of this choice.
We are studying how to automatically remove unneeded code to improve security.
