I am a cyber security researcher at the SICS Swedish ICT, Sweden. I work in Networked Embedded Systems (NES) Group. NES is one of the best Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) research group in Europe. I work on security issues in WSN in general and IP-connected WSN in particular. My research interests include,

  • Secure Internet of Things (IoT) / Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) / Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs)
    • IPsec for 6LoWPAN [Source code available here or checkout from the Contiki repository using the following command,
      svn co ipsec
    • CoAPs: CoAP over DTLS/TLS [source code Lithe]
    • IEEE 802.15.4 Link layer security
    • Lightweight IKEv2
    • RPL Security
    • Intrusion Detection and firewalling in the IoT [source code SVELTE]
    • Secure Cloud-connected IoT
  • Security Issues in Industrial WSN (WirelessHART)
  • Secure Smart Metering System
  • Secure File System for WSN

We work on Contiki, an operating system for resource constrained embedded devices.

Conference Reviewer

  • IEEE LCN 2013


 I completed the industrial PhD degree in Computer Science and Engineering from the SICS Swedish ICT and Mälardalen University Sweden. I hold a Technology of Licentiate degree from Mälardalen University Västerås Sweden, and Master of Science degree in Information and Communication Systems Security (ICSS) from KTH The Royal Institute of Technology Stockholm, Sweden. I also hold a 4-years Bachelors of Science degree in Information Technology from Pakistan. In my Bachelors degree I topped the whole batch with 3.89/4.0 GPA and was awarded Gold Medal. During my PhD studies, I have attended International CONET Summer School focused on "SENIOT: From Sensor Networks to Networked Intelligent Objects" held in Bertinoro (Forlì-Cesena), July 2009, Italy.
