DistriNet is a KU Leuven research group, and is part of the KU Leuven Security and Privacy Competence Center (http://distrinet.cs.kuleuven.be/). The focus and scope of imec-DistriNet is twofold: distributed software, with a focus on middleware, and secure software. Within these two domains, we perform research on a range of topics including: IOT systems, cloud applications, enterprise applications and data systems. Software engineering techniques are researched to realize adaptable and open software systems that are both high quality and trustworthy.
IDEAS is the Distrinet applied research unit at Group-T on intelligent and distributed e-application security. IDEAS is also part of the e-Media Research Lab, that brings together expertise from different domains such as electrical engineering, signal processing, data analysis, machine learning, computer sciences, software engineering, social sciences and user experience design.
The IDEAS research unit focusses on intelligent solutions for the both the technical problems as well as people problems in secure software engineering of web-based applications. In many application domains, development teams of software-intensive systems struggle to deliver secure software on time. Considering the many security issues reported every day, and considering the lack of personnel at many software development companies, applied research must address important key system architectures that suffer the most of this lack of security-awareness. In the current state-of-practice in software development, applications are continuously delivered too late, and often too insecure.
In summary, IDEAS’ research envisions secure and agile development platforms and methodologies that includes
- Early visualization of application developer mistakes and bugs with a focus on vulnerabilities in application-level security.
- ML-based analytics of software engineering processes and artifacts.
- Gamification and incentivization of security in software engineering.
- Usable security concepts and reconfigurable security middleware for application developers.
The research is experimenting and validating in the following key innovative system architectures:
- Cloud applications, including multi-tenant web APIs, and micro-service architectures,
- Client-centric web platforms such as the decentralized web Solid and progressive web apps,
- Web-connected, distributed, and embedded software for IoT solutions.
