Half the battle in security and privacy research is often developing the right tools to measure and analyze — whether that’s accurately measuring human behaviors online, analyzing and quantifying the risk associated with certain data sharing practices, or measuring the economy of anonymous online marketplaces, among other examples. CyLab researchers are working towards developing these measurement and analysis tools to help identify the status of products or services, and where the problems are that need to be addressed.
