Cryptography and Cyberspace Security Team

Approval Year: 2016

Leader: Futai Zhang

Members: Bo Chen, Wanfeng Dou, Futai Zhang, Guoqiang Zhang, Qian Gao, Yinxia Sun, Yi Yin, Guiying Zhang, Limin Shen


The group of “Cyberspace Security” mainly focuses on the study of the theories and technologies of network, cryptography, and cyberspace security. The research interests of the group include the architecture of future networks, high performance networks, network traffic optimization、network coding, distributed computation, parallel computing, social computing, cryptography, network security and information security. Presently, there are 3 professors, 3 associate professors, and 3 lecturers in the group. In the recent 5 year, the group members published more than 100 research papers (more than 50 papers were published in SCI or EI journals), have been authorized several invention patents, and have been granted more than 6 NSFC projects.
