Our Mission

Promoting partnership among industry, academia and the government, to foster innovative research and education in Cybersecurity, thus enhancing knowledge, building solutions and mitigating risks to benefit society.

Our Vision

By way of research and academics develop an ecosystem to pursue inter-disciplinary research to protect digital assets of public and national importance.


  • Explore basic research in Cybersecurity Systems & Networks
  • Provide education, rich in theoretical and practical knowledge infused with values.
  • Develop solutions and techniques to critical challenges and
  • Implement them widely for security of the public while preserving their interests.



M.Tech. in Cybersecurity

The M. Tech program aims to train the students in the cybersecurity discipline, through a well designed combination of course-ware and its application on real-world scenarios. The programme has a strong emphasis on foundational courses such as mathematics for security applications, advanced algorithms, networks etc.


Ph.D. in Cybersecurity

Doctoral Programmes are offered by the Center with a view to encourage aspiring scholars to take up research in the country. The courses were designed with an emphasis on teaching hands-on Cybersecurity skills that help students to perform well in the industry and public organizations.


The Center's research focuses on Cloud based Soft Sensors; Scalable, Secure and Resilient Cloud Platform; Cloud Computing; Internet of Things and Security, Security Data Visualisation Cyber-physical/Networked Embedded Systems, Cryptography, Healthcare Security, BigData Analytics Platform, Automotive Security and Security Education. Cloud platforms that are currently available help the provider to control and manage customer VMs through custom built, or already existing, cloud platform solutions. To ensure that sensitive data hosted by the provider's infrastructure is secure against spurious actions performed internally (Malicious Insider Threat), we have introduced a new Security Enabled Data Object (SEDO) layer built within the hypervisor kernel. This SEDO component ensures that the control reigns to valuable assets hosted at the provider's infrastructure are passed back to the its own owners there by resolving the concern of "Lack of Asset Control for the Cloud Tenant".

Alumni Speaks

I enrolled for dual degree Masters at the Amrita Center for Cybersecurity Systems and Networks, Amritapuri, in the year 2013 and did my second year of Masters at Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam. As I am writing this, I am at VU pursuing my PhD in system security. Very sincere thanks also to the faculty at Amrita; they strive to bring out the best in us.
