The Measurable Security Lab (MSL) researches highly complex and high-impact areas of cybersecurity and privacy in today's Internet. The aesthetic of this research is that many foundational security and privacy protections should themselves be evaluable through conscientious measurements, data curation, and analyses. Based on theMeasurement and subjects of analyses include the Domain Name System (DNS), the Border Gateway Protocol's (BGP's) inter-domain routing, Named-Data Networking (NDN), Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, and more. Research and evaluation of core protections and infrastructure is leveraged to create evaluable security models and investigate security and privacy research on inter-administrative settings like fifth generations (5G) networks and systems, Internet of Things (IoT) deployments, and mobile Health (mHealth). MSL's development of cybersecurity tools, endpoint protections, and protocols are based largely on the DNS-based Authentication of Named Entities (DANE), and are available on GitHub The MSL is directed by Professor Eric Osterweil.
