Greetings! I am a Cybersecurity and Computer Systems Assistant Professor at the Brazilian Aeronautics Institute of Technology (ita.br). My expertise lies in Systems Security, designing and implementing attack and defense solutions against advanced persistent threats. My research focuses on advancing state-of-the-art cybersecurity techniques and practices to make the digital world safer.

We heavily employ Machine Learning and Data Science in our projects with a focus on the following domains:

  • Malware analysis: static, adversarial, and characterization for Windows, Android, and Phishing.

  • Next-generation IDS: utilizing advanced features like Wi-Fi CSI, advanced kernel logging systems, and ebpf to strengthen protection mechanisms (host and network) using anomaly- and signature-based approaches.

  • Exploitation of systems at scale: encompassing IoT (also industrial) systems, SOHO Wi-Fi routers, and Smart-TVs.

  • Advanced threat modeling of autonomous cars networking technologies (WAVE, C-V2X, and 5G/6G) for potential exploitation and protection.

  • Development of security functionalities: Windows Processing Admission Driver, packet filtering, and core IPsec for lightweightIP and mTCP stacks.

I co-authored the CVE-2022-46552.
