The range of areas in Computer Security we have researched at LAS is quite broad: network and protocol security, IPSec/IPv6, firewall technologies and topologies, state packet filtering, secure programming, centralized security configuration and security policy, computer forensics and incident response, VPNs, spam, self-healing systems, operating system security and mandatory access control and Linux kernel-level security. Among the research topics on which I have worked so far, two of them ended up being the main projects at LAS. Imuno is concerned with developing a human immune system-inspired computer security system and DAS-MOBASEC is a joint work with Heiko Krumm (University of Dortmund, Germany) and João Porto de Albuquerque Pereira towards high-level network security policy configuration management; João Porto was formerly a PhD student and now is a researcher at University of São Paulo. During my stay at UC Santa Barbara I intend to work in research topics that would be interesting to both our research efforts, with the intention to establish close links between our works, to develop new ideas and follow them up as a result.
