Short Bio

I am a senior researcher (post-doc) at Technische Universität Darmstadt. My research interests include collaborative intrusion detection, honeypots and alert data correlation.

I received a PhD (Dr. rer. nat.) from the Technische Universität Darmstadt in 2016 for my dissertation "On Collaborative Intrusion Detection". Heretofore, I received my diploma (Dipl.-Inform.) and MSc from the University of the Aegean (Greece) in 2008 and 2011 respectively. My master thesis, in the area of honeypots, was conducted in cooperation with the National Center of Scientific Research “Demokritos”. Lastly, I worked as a researcher for AGT International, on the field of IoT security, from 2014-2015.

A novel honeypot concept

Master Thesis

in progress


Nowadays, the number and sophistication of cyberattacks is  constantly  increasing.  To  cope  with  this,  security  solutions  such  as  Intrusion Detection Systems (IDSs)  are  considered  a  mandatory  line of  defense  for  any  critical  network.  However,  IDSs usually employ passive monitoring techniques.  Honeypots emerged from the need for more active monitoring.

Honeypots are systems whose only value is to be probed, attacked and compromised. Their purpose is to attract malicious users, study their activities and, at the same time, reduce the attack surface of the monitored network. It is important to note that since honeypots do not feature any other purpose; by definition, any interaction with them is considered an attack. Thus, they do not exhibit false positives, i.e., all incoming traffic is considered malicious.

Generating Synthetic Attacks for Intrusion Detection Systems

Master Thesis

in progress


Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) have established themselves as a mandatory line of defense for critical infrastructure. One main aspect during the development of an IDS is the evaluation and optimization of the detection algorithms. Currently there is no standardized model for the evaluation of the detection efficiency. A common approach has been the use of static datasets, but the publicly available datasets have flaws in many regards, like their actuality and the absence of up-to-date attacks.This creates challenges in terms of the reproducibility and the comparison of results.
