ISG - Grup de Seguretat de la Informació
The Information Security Group (ISG) focuses its activity on the development and proposal of security services, and their deployment in telecommunication networks.
The Information Security Group (ISG) was created at the Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya (UPC) in 2002. From the very beginning, the main strategic objective of the ISG group was to be a reference security group.
Currently, the group is formed by 9 professors and after 15 years working together, the results are 163 papers in ranked journals, 321 papers in conferences, 60 competitive projects, 20 read thesis, 17 books and book chapters, 12 awards and 9 patents.
The group is leading the security and privacy tasks in the H2020 BIG IoT project including blockchain for enhancing security and privacy on the IoT. The group has also expererience in network forensics, remote tools, cloud forensics and antiforensics tools. In addition, ISG members have worked in traceability and fingerprinting codes, as well as decoding algorithms. Finally, we have experience in authentication and certification at different protocol layers.

Incremental k-Anonymous microaggregation in large-scale electronic surveys with optimized scheduling (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018-10-15)
Open AccessImprovements in technology have led to enormous volumes of detailed personal information made available for any number of statistical studies. This has stimulated the need for anonymization techniques striving to attain a ...
Open AccessThis paper presents explicit constructions of fingerprinting codes. The proposed constructions use a class of codes called almost secure frameproof codes. An almost secure frameproof code is a relaxed version of a secure ...
Open AccessThe development of analytical models to analyze the behavior of vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs) is a challenging aim. Adaptive methods are suitable for many algorithms (e.g., choice of forwarding paths, dynamic resource ...
Multimedia fingerprinting with noise via signature codes for weighted noisy adder channels and compressed sensing (2017)
Open AccessWe propose a new coding scheme for multimedia fingerprinting resistant to noise. Our scheme is based on signature codes for weighted noisy adder channel. The scheme (codes) can trace the entire coalition of pirates and ...
