Bahria University
Cyber Reconnaissance and Combat (CRC) Lab

The Cyber Reconnaissance and Combat (CRC) Lab will focus on development of indigenous IDS software that can monitor and raise alarms in case of cyber-attacks. The CRC lab will design a hardware prototype of IDS that would serve as a proof of concept. The FPGA based implementation of a complex IDS is extremely challenging task that shall require considerable time and effort. Over all the application domains of the IDS shall consist of the following

  • Database Designing & Pre-processing
  • IDS Core Functionalities
  • Multicore System Implementation & Integration
  • Hardware Prototyping

Our People

Our core members and reserchers are academics, developers, administrators and MS/PhD students. Our industrial partners are public and private cyber security organizations that advise us on the design, implementation and commercialization of the R&D work originating from our Lab.
