Ubiquitous computing technologies have received great attention in recent years, mainly due to the evolution of wireless networking and mobile computing hardware. However, ubiquitous computing technologies including Wireless Ad hoc Networks and RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) systems suffer from a number of inherent vulnerabilities with grave security implications. In this presentation we will discuss possible research directions for intrusion detection and response in ubiquitous computing technologies, with emphasis on wireless ad hoc networks and RFID systems. The focus of this research is to detect and respond to attacks at an early stage.
Aikaterini Mitrokotsa is a postdoctoral researcher at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science of Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. Formerly, she held a position as a visitor assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at the Free University (Vrije Universiteit) in Amsterdam. In 2007, she received a Ph.D in Computer Science from the University of Piraeus.
Dr. Mitrokotsa's main research interests lie in the area of network security, intrusion detection systems, denial of service attacks, neurocomputing and machine learning applications to RFID, fixed, wireless ad hoc and sensor networks security. She has been active both in European and National research projects while recently she has been awarded the Rubicon Research Grant by the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO).
