Colorado Research Institute for

Security and Privacy


The Colorado Research Institute for Security and Privacy (CRISP) is an active research group in information security and privacy at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Denver. CRISP is dedicated to creating tools and techniques that is directly useful for a broad audience, going beyond the usual construction of academic proof-of-concept prototypes.

At the University of Denver, professors associated with CRISP teach courses in Computer Security, System Security, Networking, Systems Programming and Privacy.

We believe in full disclosure and are happy to educate students in all aspects of security, including attacking the security of systems. Please visit our projects page to see what we are working on currently.

CRISP is always looking for enterprising students interested in information security/privacy. If you are not already a student at DU, please follow the Computer Science application process and mention your interest as information security/privacy in the application. We also offer a one-year MS in Cybersecurity program as a fast track method to obtain cybersecurity skills.

The group is funded in part by the National Science Foundation under Grant No. DUE-0911991. Any opinions, findings and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect those of the National Science Foundation.
