Current activities

I am a research assistant and trying to obtain my Doctor degree at the IT security chair. In particular, I am interested in exploring unconventional attacks using HTML5 technologies to use the browser's resources as well as their countermeasures. I am currently the work package leader for the security tasks in the AGILE project. The main focus on our work in this project is on identity management, access and usage control of the data, and data provenance collection. I have previously worked for the COMPOSE Project, where my tasks were related to identity management, data provenance, and reputation collection.

Research Interests 

  • Unconventional attacks based on HTML5 technologies
