The mission of the Security and Software Engineering Research Center at Georgetown (S²ERC) is to conduct a program of applied and basic research on software security, system security and software technology problems of interest to its members. The goal of this research is to enable security and software technology gains within member organizations.

The NSF awarded Georgetown a grant to become a site for the NSF-sponsored S²ERC, joining Virginia Tech, Ball State University, and Iowa State University. You will find more information in the following pages.

On behalf of Georgetown and the other S²ERC university sites and current affiliates, I invite you to promote and eventually join a research center that can change the way you do business. As S²ERC enters its 28th year and Georgetown enters its 225th year, we look forward to you joining our center. For more information, please contact the Center Director, Dr. Eric Burger.

A related center to the S²ERC is the Georgetown Center for Secure Communications. More information on the GCSC can be found at
