Core competencies

NICS Lab is an international leading Security research group headed by Javier Lopez, Full Professor of
the Computer Science Department at University of Malaga. NICS is composed of 20 persons, including
faculty members, post-docs researchers, top PhD students, and technical and management staff,
being
distributed on two different locations, the university premises at Andalusian Scientific Park and the
Computer Science Department at Campus Teatinos.

The research activities of the group started back in 1994, when Prof. Lopez published his first
research work on electronic mail security in Local Area Networks, followed by others on probabilistic
primality tests for public keys, and public-key directories security based on neural networks. Since
then, NICS members have published over 200 publications, among them more than 40 journal
publications with impact factor (ISI-ranked).

Additionally, NICS members have participated in more than 40 security research projects at
international and national level, funded by V, VI and VII European Frameworks Programmes as well as
by different Ministries in Spain, Japan, Norway and Singapore.

NICS Lab actively participates in international committees and Working Groups in the Security area,
as
well as in the organization of multiple international conferences and workshops. Moreover, NICS is
particularly dynamic in the exchange of researchers with other research institutions, having signed
official scientific and technical cooperation agreements in US with NIST (Information Technology
Laboratory, Computer Security Division), and in Singapore with I2R (Cryptography & Security
Department).

Over the years, NICS members have been especially active in technology transfer to companies like
ATOS Origin, HP Labs, Telefonica, France Telecom, Siemens, Indra, Banesto, Orange, Endesa,
Sermepa and Telvent, as well as to public entities like the Spanish Ministry of Defense, the
Andalusian
Government, and RedIRIS (Spanish advanced communications network for academic and R+D
Centres).
