The School of Engineering and the School of Business at the University of Connecticut have established a joint Center for Information Assurance and Computer Systems Security (CIACSS). The Center is open to all university researchers and is the primary research home for all areas of information assurance. The Center has five main areas of research: Authorization and Access Control; Cryptography and Cryptanalysis; Data Security and Privacy; Information Fusion and Data Mining for Homeland Security; and Trustable Computing Systems. It is the home to over 20 faculty and nearly 100 graduate students supported by over $4 million in active research grants. Faculty and researchers associated with the center have published over 150 peer-reviewed papers in information assurance and have been active in initiatives, community service, and outreach.
