In my studies I’m working on fine-grained access control in heterogeneous cloud environments. In particular, I focus on inter-access-control and pseudonymous authentication protocols. Relying on Attribute-Based Encryption (ABE), I show how advanced cryptographic primitives can be used to enforce access control in the IIoT.

Besides, I have contributed to projects of Secure Information Technology Center Austria (A-SIT) and to the SUNFISH (SecUre iNFormatIon SHaring in federated heterogeneous private clouds) EU-project.
