AbdelRahman Abdou PhD

I am an Assistant Professor at the School of Computer Science, Carleton University. In 2018, I was a Senior Research Scientist in the System Security group of ETH Zürich, Switzerland. I obtained my PhD in Systems and Computer Engineering, co-advised by Dr. Ashraf Matrawy and Dr. Paul Van Oorschot. My research interests span SDN security, Web security (including TLS, DNSSec, authentication, secure BGP, and secure Internet geolocation), and using Internet measurements to understand and solve problems related to Internet systems' security.
