I am a cyber security researcher at the SICS Swedish ICT, Sweden. I work in the Networked Embedded Systems (NES) Group. NES is one of the best IP-connected Internet of Things (IoT) research group in Europe. I work on cyber security in the Internet of Things. Particularly, I am interested in,
- Communication security in the IoT
- Key enrollment; key management; Certificate-based asymmetric cryptography; Lightweight IKEv2, IPsec, and DTLS; secure CoAP; 6LoWPAN security; IEEE 802.15.4 security; and WirelessHART
- Network security in the IoT
- Intrusion Detection in the IoT, RPL Security
- Secure Storage in the IoT [Fusion]
- Secure cloud-connected IoT
- Smart grid and smart metering security
- Security and IP Connectivity for Bluetooth Low Energy (LE)
We work on Contiki, an operating system for resource constrained embedded devices.

I completed 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 different summer schools including the International CONET Summer School focused on "SENIOT: From Sensor Networks to Networked Intelligent Objects" held in Bertinoro (Forlì-Cesena), July 2009, Italy.
