In 2009-2010, he was a postdoctoral researcher in the network security group of Prof. Vern Paxson at the International Computer Science Institute (ICSI) Since 2006, he is an associate member of the Laboratory of Cryptography and Systems Security (CrySyS) at Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME), Hungary, where he currently holds the title of assistant professor.
This course fills an important gap in the education of software engineers, - namely developing secure software applications. During this course, students will learn the most common mistakes in software development and how attackers exploit those mistakes (offensive security). Then, students get to know how to mitigate attacks and write secure software applications.
