My research interests are in designing protocols and mechanisms to secure pervasive systems, especially the resource-restraint wireless networks. The investigation focuses on integrating multi-disciplinary schemes ( information theory, scientific visualization, etc.) with network techniques to prevent and detect various attacks and to enforce security and privacy in such environments. Several topics that I am working on are:


  • Privacy enforcement in wireless networks and its impacts on network security and performance
  • Secure and private location based routing and services
  • Effective representation of security data and visualization of attacks
  • Key distribution and management schemes
  • Self-organized intrusion detection and intruder identification methods
