Experience

  • July 2017 to December 2019, Assistant Professor | Madanapalle Institute of Technology & Science (MITS), Madanapalle, Andhra Pradesh, India

Professional Service

  • Period: 2014 to 2017 (Research Scholar)
  • Responsibilities:
    • Delivered several hands-on sessions on “Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing" in employee development training programmes (EDPs) conducted for the Indian Banks at IDRBT, Hyderabad.
    • Coordinated and participated in the Cyber Drills conducted for the Indian Banks at IDRBT, Hyderabad.
    • Participated as an Analyst Team Member in the Cyber Drills conducted by Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In).

Research Interest

  • Incremental, and mission-centric attack graph generation
  • Use of opportunistic software diversity for increasing network robustness against Cyber attacks
  • Combining anti-forensic datasets with attack graphs to enhance forensic capabilities
  • Investigation of reduction in the attackers work factor because of the repetition of vulnerabilities along the attack paths
  • Finding the edit distance (minimum network hardening cost) between a pair of successive attack graphs to reduce the network attack surface
  • Cost controlled network diversification to increase network robustness against the known and zero-day attacks
  • Investigating the moving target defences in computer networks to increase the uncertainty of attackers about the target computer networks
