My research focuses in computer and network security as well as privacy. More specifically, I am interested in the design of provably secure cryptographic protocols that can be employed for reliable authentication and cloud-assisted computing, while providing strong privacy guarantees. I am particularly focusing on resource-constrained devices (Internet of Things), RFID systems and wireless sensor networks as well as in intrusion detection and response mechanisms in wired and wireless networks. Furthermore, I am interested in designing privacy-preserving authentication protocols especially when biometrics are involved in the authentication process. More precisely, my research interests cover the following areas:

  • Privacy-preserving mechanisms
  • Design of provably secure cryptographic protocols
  • Secure and private Cloud-assisted computing
  • Secure and privacy-preserving IoT systems
  • Network security and intrusion detection systems
  • Secure & privacy-preserving Machine Learning
