We live, work, and play in a highly-connected, multi-application and multi-device world. Every day we exchange information, often unwillingly, which chips away a little bit of our privacy at a time. In this talk I will present some results on building systems that can enforce privacy policies in these types of complex environments and how these policies can be exchange in a privacy-preserving manner. I will also, discuss some of the other research activities I am involved in in the area of systems and network security.
Dr. Sotiris Ioannidis is an Associate Researcher at the Institute of Computer Science of Foundation for Research and Technology Hellas and a Marie-Curie Fellow. His research interests include security policy, operating system and network security, access control in large scale systems, and privacy. He has served on numerous program committees, and is the author of more than 40 technical articles in a number of journals, conferences, and books. He has participated in numerous DARPA, ONR, NSF, and EU funded research projects.
Ioannidis received his diploma in Mathematics from the University of Crete in 1994, his M.S. degrees in Computer Science from the Universities of Crete and Rochester, NY, in 1996 and 1998 respectively, and his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Pennsylvania, in 2005. Before joining FORTH-ICS he was a Research Scholar at the Computer Science Department of the Stevens Institute of Technology, in NJ, USA.
