The CAPS group is part of the Computer Science Department at Brown University. We work on all aspects of cryptography, anonymity, privacy and security; ranging from studying theoretical foundations to building real-world systems.
Our research interests include
Our group has made extensive contributions to several security and privacy technologies including: anonymous credentials, authenticated data structures, encrypted databases, automated software hardening, and OS kernel self-protection.
