The University of Melbourne is one of Australia’s Academic Centres of Cyber Security Excellence. We research topics in cyber security such as: machine learning for security analytics, privacy, attack detection and response, and Internet-of-Things (IoT) security. For example, we are particularly focused on highly accurate and scalable machine learning methods for detecting attacks in backbone and IoT networks, where our PhD students devise new machine learning algorithms to analyse network traffic and sensor data.
