Carnegie Mellon Lab Tackles Cyber-Security

Security, engineering and public policy experts at Carnegie Mellon University are joining together to form a new lab at the school dedicated to researching and developing new security technologies. The new organization, known as the Carnegie Mellon CyLab, will include representatives from the school’s engineering, computer science and public policy departments, as well as personnel from the CERT Coordination Center, also based at the university. The new group will seek to promote collaboration between the government and the private sector, something that has been sorely lacking when it comes to information security. CyLab’s charter will differ significantly from that of CERT, which is charged with analyzing and responding to security threats and attacks.
