I am a tenured professor in the Computer Science department, Bar Ilan University, Israel. I head the Secure Communication and Computing (`Cyber`) group, where we do applied cyber-security research. I am also a member of the Fraunhofer Project Center for Cybersecurity (in the Hebrew University, Jerusalem).
I love research and like to teach and advise; see my online courses and students pages. I also like to consult, when time allows, but only in interesting, challenging projects. [I like legal aspects too, though.]
In addition to purely technical research, I have opinions on some social-technical, ethical and legal issues. For example, see Cyber Security & Centralized Data, What Could Go Wrong?, an interview by the Institute for New Economic Thinking on the importance of privacy for society and economics, and the need for (self-)controls on at least some forms of cyber-warfare. See also interview (in Hebrew) where I explain the risks of biometric repository which is being piloted in Israel. I am happy to receive feedback and discuss.
