S. Felix Wu

I am part of the Computer Security group at UC Davis. In research, I am interested in security issues related to both networking and networked (if you can tell the difference) systems. Currently, I have been working on the following research areas: Unknown vulnerability analysis, IPSec/VPN Policy Management, Routing protocol security, Internet architecture, Mobility, Secure computer architecture, Email Antispam, Information Visualization for Security, Anomaly Analysis and Explanation. Very soon, I realized that I was probably interested in too many things.
