The Laboratory of Security & Storage Technology (LOSST) was founded in the year 2014 by Dr. Sarah Diesburg of the Computer Science Department to research computer privacy issues dealing with data and storage. Specifically, we investigate specialized forensics and anti-forensics techniques for recovering, destroying, and hiding data.
Currently, we are researching deletion habits on USB thumb drives. For more information on how you can participate, please click on the USB Buyback Study link.
