End Point Security :
The end point security is a very wide domain due to variety and associated vulnerabilities in end point systems used by individuals and all corporate sector include government, transport, medical, travel, entertainment etc. This project includes the security of operating system, memory, application and data of PCs, mobile, and servers from malware. Some online or offline end point systems can be classified as critical infrastructure due to their reliability and availability requirements. These services include banking, cyber connected power grid, control systems of nuclear power plants and critical communication services.
Internet Security :
To ensure cyber security of government and corporate sectors of Pakistan, under this project, we aim to provide early detection and prevention of DOS and DDOS attacks. In order to utilize the benefits offered by cloud computing, we are trying to enhance its security, mainly the trust issues. Moreover, for uncovering hidden malware and security profiling of Internet traffic.
Whether the computer forensic examiner investigates the evidence in his lab or he works directly at the crime scene, he needs a lot of tools and a well-prepared location to go through the analysis and fully investigate the digital evidence. Under this project, we aim to identify and explore all the needed tools and hardware to analyze, identify, preserve, recover, and present facts and opinions about the information at hand.
Quantum information is an emerging technology and compared to advanced countries, we are lacking behind in this area of research. Therefore, through this project, we are not only aiming to promote knowledge, research, and
expertise in this area but also provide secure and computationally efficient solutions to government, private sectors, and to all the citizens of the country. Through this project, it will become possible for the country to utilize the latest quantum key distribution technology.
