MIT Lincoln Laboratory Data Science Researcher in Lexington, Massachusetts

What do we do in our Cyber-Physical Systems Group?

The Cyber-Physical Systems Group at MIT Lincoln Laboratory supports US national security objectives by understanding the cybersecurity implications of physical access/effects to computing systems and by leveraging that understanding for the benefit of the US DoD, intelligence community, and law enforcement agencies. To that end, the group studies the way in which IoT devices, critical infrastructure, and national mission sensor and communication systems interact with the physical world throughout their lifecycles. Of particular interest is exploring ways in which computing systems expose cyber vulnerabilities through both intended interfaces (receivers and transmitters) as well as unintended interfaces (incidental coupling and unintended RF emissions).
