In the spring of 2007, Prof. Dimitrios Hatzinakos and Kostas Plataniotis, Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering, University of Toronto, joined by Andrew Clement from the Faculty of Information, created a new initiative at the University of Toronto focusing on identity, privacy and security.
The Identity, Privacy and Security Initiative (IPSI) was established to carry out a pioneering, interdisciplinary program of research, education, outreach, industry collaboration and technology transfer with emphasis on technology, policy and science. IPSI has received generous financial support from University of Toronto's Academic Initiatives Fund.
As a direct result of this initiative, in the fall of 2007, the University launched two new interdisciplinary masters level Programs leading to either a Master of Engineering (M.Eng), or a Master of Information with concentration on Security (MI). Common seminars allow students from the participating faculties to work together in the classroom and through team assignments. Undergraduate initiatives, research programs and outreach activities are also in development.
The overall goal of IPSI is to develop new approaches to security that maintain the privacy, freedom and safety of the user and the broader community.
