Information Security

ISIP (Information security Image Processing) at Department of Computer Science, COMSATS Institute of Information Technology, Abbottabad is a community of researchers who share an interest to join in the evolution of Information security and image processing research domains. Our research profile takes advantage of the group's interdisciplinary nature to tackle major challenges in many different areas of information security and image processing. With these aims in mind, the group, initially, has focus on primarily these application areas but are not limited to:

  • Cryptography and its applications
  • Security of systems and technologies
  • Applied Basic Research in Image Pattern Recognition: fundamental issues in statistical learning.
  • Biometric Recognition: individual identification by analyzing their physiological and behavioral characteristics, including face, iris, fingerprint, palm print, etc.
  • Intelligent video processing and understanding: automatic video analysis and understanding to reduce human intervention in surveillance.
  • Surveillance (tracking, identification, road safety)
  • Object categorization and scene analysis in natural images (e.g. building extraction, object recognition, camouflage breaking, feature analysis)
  • Medical Image Analysis
  • This group is an open community and any interested faculty member can join the group.
