As a Ph.D. student at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Houston, I specialize in Cyber Deception, IoT Security, Privacy, Data Analytics & ML, and the Cloud-IoT ecosystem. I have been exploring these topics since 2016 and have published my research findings extensively.
Before joining the University of Houston, I worked as a lecturer in the Department of CSE at the Green University of Bangladesh. Currently, my research focuses on Cyber Deception and Adversarial Reconnaissance. My team and I are working on developing strategies to deceive attackers inside a compromised network.
I thrive on collaboration with other researchers and have completed multiple projects and publications in partnership with others. My passion for technology extends beyond research, and I have taken vendor courses and exams in areas like RHCSA, RHCE, OpenStack, and CCNA. My goal is to expand my knowledge in DevSecOps or SRE to further enhance my expertise in System Administration.
News & Updates
I have successfully completed my internship at Charles Schwab and returned back to the University of Houston.
I have joined Charles Schwab (Headquarters at Westlake, TX) as a Summer 2023 Intern (Site Reliability Engineering & CYBER).
I have become a Ph.D. candidate after successfully defending my proposal on May 30, 2023.
I have started my #100daychallenge for learning and sharing resources on Site Reliability Engineering. I will be sharing my journey as a blog post under the tag '#100daysofSRE' on my blog. You can navigate the list of contents on my Medium post or this GitHub Repo.
We have submitted a new paper entitled "SoK: The MITRE ATT&CK Framework in Research and Practice" at a cyber security conference. The preprint is available on Arxiv. In this work, we explored the use cases and applications of MITRE ATT&CK in Academic Research and Industry. Feel free to read and cite the work if relevant.
I started a new GitHub Repository entitled CyberSecurity Concepts in Python to provide different security concepts in Python. Blog Posts are also available alongside codes. Please find the links in the README.md file. Find more posts on shantoroy.com.
