Dr Daniele Sgandurra

Personal profile

My research interests are related to practical aspects of software security, by focusing on attacks and defences at various architectural layers. My recent work investigates the arms-race between malware and anti-malware systems.

Short bio

I hold a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Pisa (2010), supervised by Prof. F. Baiardi. During my PhD studies I've worked on virtualization security. In particular, my research has focused around virtual machine introspection to enable a secure virtual machine to check the state of a monitored virtual machine. During my PhD I've been a visiting research at IBM Zurich Research Laboratory, collaborating in the security group supervised by Diego Zamboni and Andreas Wespi, by participating in the Phantom project.

From 2010 to 2013 I've been a PostDoc researcher at the Institute of Informatics and Telematics of the Italian National Research Council (CNR), in Pisa (IT), where I've mainly worked in the field of mobile security.

From 2014 to October 2016, I've been a Research Associate at the Department of Computing, Imperial College London, working in the Security Group lead by Emil Lupu. Here, I've focused my research in the field of threat modeling and attack graps for Cloud systems, and I've been involved in the Coco Cloud EU project.

Since October 2016, I'm a Lecturer at the Information Security Group at Royal Holloway, where most of my research focuses on the arms-race between malware and anti-malware systems, and since September 2018 I lead the Systems and Software Security Lab (S3Lab). Currently, I'm the Principal Investigator at RHUL of H2020 Project FutureTPM (2018-2020) on Quantum Resistant Trusted Platform Module (TPM), by leading the virtual TPM activities. I'm also involved in the activities of the InterNational CyberSecurity Center of Excellence (INCS-CoE), in particular with the Country-to-Country Capture the Flag (C2C-CTF) competition. Since 2019, I'm the Program Chair of the Workshop on Cyber-Security Arms Race (CYSARM).
