Research Interests

My topic “Secure Decentralization Methodologies for the Internet of Things” can be divided into three main aspects:

  • Consensus Protocols for CPS: How can agents synchronize state information without a central instance? E.g. how can autonomous vehicles agree on a schedule when crossing an intersection?
  • Blockchain for Embedded Systems: How can we certify and verify agreed upon data by storing them in a Blockchain? How can we use Blockchain on resource-constrained devices? 
  • Lightweight Message Authentication: How can cheap devices (especially sensors) send authenticated/signed messages that can be verified by a large amount of receivers? E.g. use Hash-based Signature Schemes as asymmetric message authentication.
