About the ISIS Laboratory
The Information Systems and Internet Security (ISIS) cybersecurity laboratory is an offensive security research environment where students analyze and understand how attackers take advantage of real systems. This approach gives our students a unique perspective and a proper foundation that allows them to master any area of security at NYU Poly.
The ISIS Lab is for undergraduates, graduates, and professors devoted to learning and understanding practical tools and techniques used by attackers and defenders by analyzing real-world actors, hands-on experimentation, and developing projects in the lab related to information security.
The ISIS Lab is run by students, advised by hackers in residence and industry partners, supported by the Computer Science and Engineering department, and is directed by founder Nasir Memon.
Current research areas include:
- Application Security
- Network Security
- Reverse Engineering
- Vulnerability Analysis and Exploitation Development
- Program Analysis
- Discovery and Prevention of Hardware Trojans
- Hardware for Secure Systems
- Digital Forensics
