With the tremendous amount of digital information stored on today's computer systems, and with the increasing motivation and ability of malicious attackers to target this wealth of information, computer security has become an increasingly important topic. An important research effort towards such computer security issues focuses on protecting the privacy and integrity of computation to prevent attackers from stealing or modifying critical information. This type of protection is important for enabling many important features of secure computing such as enforcement of Digital Rights Management, reverse engineering and software piracy prevention, and trusted distributed computing.
