Welcome to the website of the Information Security and Privacy (ISP) Lab at UNIL-HEC Lausanne! The lab is headed by Prof. Kévin Huguenin. The current research interest of the lab is in security and privacy in mobile (social) networks, with a special emphasis on the human and social aspects. We are particularly interested in interdisciplinary research projects on privacy, at the frontier between computer science and social sciences (incl. law, economics and sociology) and/or medicine (mHealth, genomics, medical databases). The current activities focus mainly on the exploration of the privacy / utility trade-off in location-based and activity-based online social networks.
