About me

My name is Mohammad Rezaeirad. I'm a researcher and PhD student at Security Lab at George Mason University. I am working under supervision of Dr. Damon McCoy.


Feel free to shoot me email at: mrezaeir [at] gmu [dot] edu.




Here is my Linkedin. You can also see my CV.


Current Projects

I am involved in some interesting projects. Primarily, I work on security analysis of the car infotainment system, funded by General Motors. My second interesting project is designing a new hardware security primitive to be used in sensitive electronics.


Research Interests

I am interested and working in the fields of Cyber-Physical Security. More specifically, my focuses are:

      Reverse Engineering (both Hardware and Software)

      Vulnerability Analysis and Ethical Hacking

      Embedded System Security


The topics that I have worked on and, influenced my research interests are: Modern Cryptography, Network Security (especially in wireless networks), Security Mechanisms in Cloud Computing, and Digital Right Management.


Things That I Do

Hardware Hacking and Reverse Engineering:

      Protocol Analysis (UART, SPI, SD/MMC, JTAG, etc.)

      Microscopy and Silicon Die Analysis

      Fault injection and Glitching

      Side-channel Analysis (Timing, Power, EM)

      Firmware extraction


Software Reverse Engineering:

      Disassembly (x86, MIPS)

      Static and Dynamic Analysis

      Binary and Compiled Code Analysis

      Source Code Analysis


My Swiss army knives are: IDA-PRO, OllyDBG, Rec Studio, Dependency Walker, Bus Pirate, JTAGulator, Logic 16, WindRiver JTAG Debugger, Oscilloscope, and bunch of other gadgets.
