We are finally able to announce our KNOB attack work, a project with Daniele Antonioli (SUTD) and Kasper Rasmussen (Oxford). In the work, we show that the Bluetooth protocol as used by billions of devices is broken from a security perspective, and attackers can eavesdrop and manipulate communication in a stealthy way.
My two first PhD students, Daniele Antonioli and Hamid Ghaeini, successfully defended their PhD in Singapore yesterday. Daniele presented his thesis with the title "Design, Implementation, and Evaluation of Secure Cyber-Physical and Wireless Systems", which included two recent tier one publications. Hamid's thesis has the title "Threats to Industrial Control Systems and Process-based Countermeasures", and included a recent RAID paper.
