Hi there! I am Marinos Tsantekidis, a Ph.D. candidate at the Embedded Computer Security Workgroup of the Institute of Computer and Network Engineering at TU Braunschweig - Germany, under the supervision of Prof. Vassilis Prevelakis. I also hold a research assistant position at the Institute of Computer Science in FORTH - Greece, working with Prof. Sotiris Ioannidis. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science from the Technological Educational Institute of Thessaloniki, Greece in 2011 and my Master of Science degree in Digital Systems Security from the University of Piraeus, Greece in 2015. My research focuses on security at the operating system level. Specifically, I am working on building a secure execution environment that leverages both kernel-side as well as user-space approaches in Linux, that work transparently and efficiently towards strengthening the runtime security of applications against several types of attacks. This is my personal website where you can find some info on me, including a list of my publications, prior working experience and education, etc.
CONCORDIA (standing for Cyber security cOmpeteNCe fOr Research anD InnovAtion) aims to build the European Secure, Resilient and Trusted Ecosystem. The vision of CONCORDIA is to build a community with a strong cooperation between all stakeholders, understanding that all stakeholders have their KPIs, bridging among them and fostering the development of IT products and solutions along the whole supply chain. Technologically, it projects a broad and evolvable data-driven and cognitive E2E Security approach for the ever-complex ever-interconnected compositions of emergent data-driven cloud, IoT and edge-assisted ICT ecosystems.

Apart from being a security researcher / web developer, I enjoy being outdoors. In the winter, I like to go hiking in the mountains. During the warmer months I enjoy going camping, spending time at the beach and doing watersports.
However, I also like spending time at home. I follow many kinds of movies and television shows, I am an aspiring cook and I spend a large amount of my free time exploring the latest technolgy achievements.
