The Dependable and Secure Distributed Systems Laboratory (DS2) at Purdue University focuses on creating and building distributed systems and network protocols that achieve security, availability, and performance in spite of failures, misconfigurations, and attacks. Our approach combines theoretical principles and experimental methodologies from distributed systems, cryptography, networking, information theory, and machine learning to create systems and protocols based on provable guarantees and validated in realistic environments.

The research conducted within the lab is funded by the Center for Education and Research in Information Security and Assurance (CERIAS), by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), and by the National Science Foundation (NSF) .
