Attack Resistance

The first two axes of the team allowed us to measure the concrete technical means of the attacker. We claim that the attacker can always avoid the measures put in place to secure a system. We believe that another way to offer more secure systems is to take into account from the design phase that these systems will operate in the presence of an omnipotent attacker. The last research axis of the CIDRE team is focused on offering systems that are resistant to attackers, i.e. they can provide the expected services even in the presence of an attacker.

To achieve this goal, we explore two approaches:

  • be able to take into account all possible actions of the attacker

  • provide services based on the collaboration of a set of nodes that are not affected by the presence in minority of malicious nodes

We are interested in massively-used systems that are essential building blocks of security or privacy.
