If you asked me, which school that you may consider for computer security research, I may share with you my findings, based on (not so) careful readings and email interactions with prospective professors. In network intrusion, malware analysis (sensor), you may look into these schools:
-SUNY Stony Brook
-U Southern Calif.
While for security protocols, cryptographic related:
-U Notre Dame
and some other schools (I'm not concentrating into this!).
I am waiting to pick up my wife, so this writing is junk another piece of junk. Ignore it for real!
