Systems Protection & Exploitation Research Group

SPERG is a multidisciplinary research group of faculty and students with computing , engineering, and security focus. We are looking for stand-out graduate and undergraduate students who want to pursue research in the areas of software protection and exploitation such as software obfuscation, malware analysis, and intrusion detection.

Our goals include:

  1. Develop undergraduate and graduate interest in research projects related to:
    • Malware analysis,
    • Detection, mitigation,
    • Intrusion detection,
    • Obfuscation and deobfuscation,
    • Watermarking,
    • Tamper-proofing,
    • Reverse engineering,
    • Embedded systems protection,
    • Cyber/network attack and defense
  2. Grow in knowledge of theory and practice related to the field
  3. Publication
  4. Funding opportunities for undergraduates and graduates
