Dr Thanassis Giannetsos

Research Interests

Dr Giannetsos is interested in various aspects of network security. His PhD research was focused on Security in Connected Smart Objects. Since then he has broadened his research interests to include the following topics:

  • Privacy Enhancing Technologies – Privacy by design, Privacy by Engineering, Privacy Design Patterns
  • Security and Privacy-Enhancing in Internet of Things technologies – Smart Environments, Mobile
  • Sensing, User-centric Architectures.
  • Privacy, trust and security in (mobile) networks. How mobile data thought to be unworthy of protection can be used to reveal and infer high sensitive information: user identities, habits, etc.
  • Reputation systems, privacy in decentralized environments, cloud computing and trusted computing.
  • Cryptographic Analysis (Cryptanalysis) & Malware Analysis – Reveal new possible weaknesses that can be exploited by adversaries in order to achieve better and more realistic security architectures.
  • Identity & Credential Management.
