A team of University of Alabama at Birmingham faculty and CIS students have created a free, downloadable smartphone application to help health care providers and cancer patients identify more than 500 valuable community resources for people in North Central Alabama battling cancer.
A research paper on detecting human mood using sensors in mobile devices from postdoctoral fellow Munirul Haque, Ph.D., in the laboratory of Ragib Hasan, Ph.D., assistant professor in the UAB Department of Computer and Information Sciences, has been selected as the best paper at the Association for Computing Machinery’s 2013 International Conference on Research in Adaptive and Convergent Systems.
“We pay our bills online, shop online even reconnect with long lost friends on the web. With all that information floating around out there, have you ever wondered how much someone could find out about you? You might be surprised as we found out when Alabama’s 13 Investigates: All About You.”

Smartphones are vulnerable, but a majority of people fail to protect their mobile devices. Cybersecurity expert Ragib Hasan, Ph.D., director of the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s SECuRE and Trustworthy computing Lab (SECRET Lab), follows several simple steps to protect himself.
University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) professor Ragib Hasan, Ph.D., continues to reach out across the world to help children in need.
University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) researchers are working to improve the end-to-end security of an increasingly common means of communication.
Computer security researchers put themselves into the minds of cybercriminals to figure out what they might do next. Nitesh Saxena, Ph.D., takes a different approach. His mission is to get inside the minds of users—quite literally, in his latest project—to figure out how to protect them from new attacks.
University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) researchers have developed simple but effective techniques to prevent sophisticated malware from secretly attacking smartphones.
NSF awarded a new grant to Prof. Solorio that will support the creation of annotated corpora to study mixed-language sources.
Gary Warner, UAB’s director of Research and Computer Forensics, will be featured on NBC’s Rock Center with Brian Williams at 9 p.m. Wednesday, March 21, 2012, in a story about the FBI Trident Breach case.
The security of computer systems often relies on the actions or decisions of the end users. However, users tend to perform poorly at security tasks or fail to comply with security instructions.
Small devices, especially Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags, are being ubiquitously deployed in:  contactless ATM and credit cards, access cards, e-passports,  medical implants and even mobile phones (such as Google Wallet charged with NFC technology), to name a few.
Profs. Thamar Solorio and Ragib Hasan received a three year award from the Office of Naval Research (ONR) to support their research on document signatures.
