"The key to security is understanding”

Research profile

Sandro Etalle leads the Security group where the approach to system security is multi-faceted and covers offensive and defensive aspects of system security, always targeting concrete security problems and addressing the underlying, fundamental issues at their core. The group’s strength lies precisely in its ability to empirically and theoretically understand the full security process: from attack generation and system management, to policy specification and user aspects. Today,Etalle’s research is focused mainly on network monitoring and intrusion detection, with particular emphasis on the security of industrial control systems. Other topics includes policy specification and enforcement, and incident response. With two PhD students, Etalle founded the company SecurityMatters, bringing the result of their research to the market, and at the same time providing a source for insights into how cybersecurity evolvesin real life, leading to new research challenges.His group’s research spans three areas vital to the security of decentralized and embedded systems: (a) Security policy specification & enforcement (b) Security of embedded systems, and (c) Threat intelligence and defense, sitting at the cutting-edge intersection of these areas, addressing particularly challenging operative and theoretical problems.

Academic background
