About Centre

The Indian Institute of Science (IISc) was founded in 1909 as a result of the joint efforts of Jamsetji Nusserwanji Tata, the Government of India, and the Maharaja of Mysore. In 1886, Jamsetji Tata conceived of a university of science that will work for the benefit of India, and in 1898 created an endowment for establishing such an institution. The Government of India then took up the effort, and, in consultation with scientists in England and in India, decided to locate the Institute in Bengaluru, where the Maharaja of Mysore, Shri Krishnaraja Wodeyar IV, donated 372 acres of land. The Institute was formally vested in 1909, the foundation stone was laid in 1911, and the first batch of students started their studies in the same year.

Over the 105 years since its establishment, IISc has become the premier institute for advanced scientific and technological research and education in India. Beginning with 2 departments and 21 students in 1911, today IISc has 39 departments, units, or centres, 3500 students, and about 500 academic and scientific staff, supported by 600 administrative personnel. Out of this population of students, about 2200 are in various PhD programs, almost 900 are enrolled for various Masters degrees, whereas about 400 are registered in the newly established, research oriented, four-year Bachelor of Science (Research) programme, of which the first batch graduated in 2015.

In the recent years, with new centres such as CiSTUP (The Centre of Infrastructure, Sustainable Transportation, and Urban Planning), the Divecha Centre for Climate Change, the Centre for Earth Sciences, the Centre for Neuroscience, the Centre for Excellence in Nano Science and Engineering (CeNSE), and the Robert Bosch Centre for Cyber Physical Systems (RBCCPS), the Institute has vigorously promoted interdisciplinary research. Indeed, CiSTUP, RBCCPS and a new Centre for Brain Research (funded by a large private endowment) are expected to conduct translational research in their respective areas, in order to better connect with industry and society.

With the recent construction of modern buildings, acquisition of new research facilities, and induction of a large number of new faculty members, the Institute can look forward to an era of high productivity, increasing impact, and rising prominence in the world.

Responsibilities

Responsibilities of Information Security Research and Development Centre (ISRDC)
 

  • To carryout research – starting from basic/fundamental research leading to applied research and development of products and solutions in identified thematic areas leading to building indigenous capability of strategic importance.
  • To identify Graduation/Post Graduation students with potential to become faculty / core researchers and provide a platform for carrying out research work.
  • To mentor as well as monitor the RCs & PIs attached to them.
  • To guide the researcher and faculty from different colleges / institutes and professional from the industries.
  • To collaborate with international research community in the identified thematic areas.
  • To conduct post-doctoral, PhD, and MS by research and also attract research scholars from other subject streams.
  • To provide facilities for the industrial professionals to carry out the research for the market issues/ live problem in the industry.
  • To carryout research in critical areas of government sector pertaining to national security.
  • Organise Annual Appraisal Workshop for the RC-PI cluster attached to the thematic lab – ISRDC.
  • Organizing international conferences/seminar/workshops
  • Development of Learning Material, Virtual labs, etc. in identified areas
  • Build capabilities to develop indigenous products and solutions by creating a network of ISRDC, RCs, PIs with C-DAC. The mandate of Academic and Research institutions would be to carryout research at basic/fundamental/applied levels and generate new knowledge, while the C-DAC would provide the interface converting this knowledge into viable products and solutions which could be deployed successfully.

Research

Major and Minor Research Areas identified by ISRDCs under ISEA Project Phase II

Major Research Areas

  • Efficient Distributed Cryptography
  • Information theoretic approach to secret sharing in multi-party environment
  • Botnet Detection, complex and social networks


Minor Research Areas

  • Malware Analysis
  • Monitoring and
  • Surveillance
  • VA/PT and fuzzing

Faculty Training Program

  • Each ISRDC would conduct Advance Faculty Training Programs in line with their thematic research area through short duration modular courses for the benefit of RCs and PIs.
  • As the Information Security is constantly evolving with emergence of newer technologies and new research area, there is a need to continuously revise the syllabus. But, the syllabus revision cannot be undertaken until two batches pass out. This would lay a restriction of five years tenure for under graduate level syllabus and three years tenure for masters. However, this limitation could be overcome by ensuring that the minor/major project works undertaken by the students are of current /emerging topics.
  • Each ISRDC, RC could announce a Faculty Training Program calendar well in advance. These training programs could be of short duration modular courses and would be aimed at the faculty of the PIs. Each cluster could identify and nurture a pool of experts from academic institution, industries etc. Technology enhanced learning including virtual laboratory could be extensively deployed for wider spread of such Faculty Training Program.
