Information Security Engineering
In information security engineering studies, proactive measures are taken against the adverse effects that are generated by the progress of the ubiquitous society. The major study fields consist of the IT Information Security Area, the Physical Security Area, and the IT Convergence Security Area. In order to guarantee secure convergence & multiple services in the ubiquitous society and to safely provide future application services, the major also focuses on the study of application of security technologies to the protection of the applications used in the interpersonal communications environment and security technology for national backbone networks Presently, the necessary information security technologies for securing the next generation internet network, the next generation S/W platform, the mobile apparatus, the embedded operating system, and the convergence network, are being studied. Also, we are conducting various studies for a secure u-Korea, such as next generation information security and privacy preserving technology, digital forensics for acquiring, preserving, and analyzing digital evidence, digital ID security technology for managing user’s personal information and authentication, IP surveillance systems, maritime convergence service security for ubiquitous environments, privacy enhanced biometric systems, and human identification technology.
