Most of my current research is in the area of document and media exploitation (DOMEX) and computer forensics. Projects that I am currently working on in this area include:

  • Creating the Real Data Corpus, a large-scale unclassified corpus of real information from real computer users all over the world. The Real Data Corpus currently has more than 750 images of disk drives and USB memory sticks. This corpus is available for us by researchers with minimal restrictions. I am also exploring the use of anonymization techniques to create corpora for use by researchers.
  • Developing techniques for Automated Media Exploitation (ADOMEX). Current exploitation projects involve involve Cross-Drive Analysis and sector-based forensics.

The remainder of my research is in the field of usability and security. Here I am involved in several projects, including:

  • An evaluation of best practices for email security, with a special emphasis on the S/MIME and Domain Keys standards.
  • An on-going evaluation in the use of human subjects in computer security research.
