My research interests are in computer networks and security with emphasis on:
Security Vetting of Android Apps (via static analysis and/or dynamic analysis)
Application of Game Theory for Cybersecurity
Opportunistic Computer Networks
Security and Privacy Issues of In-network Data Aggregation in WSNs
Design and Implementation of Attribute-based Encryption (ABE) Schemes
In the recent past, I pursued research in the following areas:
Android app analysis (details of our Amandroid tool are available here), Pub/Sub with P2PSIP, optimal scheduling of the message ferry in DTNs, game models for DoS/DDoS attacks, stochastic games for cyber security, non-monotonic ciphertext policy attribute-based encryption, and attack-resilient hierarchical data aggregation protocols for sensor networks. My CV can be found here.
The list of projects are as follows:
- Data-driven approaches for security vetting of Android apps (funded by NSF SaTC). Project period: 2017-2020.
- Incorporating standards in Digital Forensics curricula (funded by NIST). Project period: 2017-2019.
I have had the opportunity to supervise a group of motivated students. More details about our research group will be posted soon.
Research agenda: I want to work on problems which excite me and my students provided those problems have practical and/or theoretical values.
