Adam Lee

Adam Lee, PhD

Associate Professor

Department of Computer Science, University of Pittsburgh

Interests

My broad research interests lie at the intersection of the security, privacy, and distributed systems fields. Much of my research focuses on authentication and authorization approaches designed to facilitate secure interactions across organizational boundaries, such as trust negotiation and distributed proof construction. Within this space, I am investigating a number of topics, including protocol design and optimization, privacy-preserving policy evaluation, the incorporation of risk metrics and reputation data into formal proof construction approaches, and efficient techniques for quantitatively analyzing security policies.

Daniel Mosse

Daniel Mosse, PhD

Chair / Professor

Department of Computer Science, University of Pittsburgh

Interests

He has been involved in the design and implementation of a couple of distributed, real-time operating system. His main research interest is in distributed systems, more specifically the allocation of resources (computing and network resources) in the realm of real-time, power management, security, and fault tolerance. He bridges the gap between the operating systems and networking research fields.
