Mohammad Rezaeirad (Rad)
I am interested and working in the fields of Cyber-Physical Security. More specifically, my focuses are: Cyber Threat Intelligence, Reverse Engineering (both Hardware and Software), Vulnerability Analysis and Ethical Hacking
The fundamental topics that I have worked on and, influenced my research interests are: System Security, Network Security, and Modern Cryptography.
RAT Protocol Study: This project aims to study the various RAT protocols, and ultimately proposes methods to track scanning/sinkholing operations and monitor the RAT operatorsÕ C&C and victims.
Evaluation of Packers and Obfuscators: (TBI)
RAT Operators Behavioral Study: This project aimed to shed a light on DarkComet RAT operators from the behavioral perspective. This includes, operator life cycle and motivation when engaged with a victim machine.
IVI Security Assessment and Analysis: In this project, we performed a comprehensive security analysis on an IVI system that is included in at least one 2015 model vehicle from a major automotive manufacturer. We documented and demonstrated insecurities in the MirrorLink protocol and IVI implementation that could potentially enable an attacker with control of a driverÕs smartphone to send malicious messages on the vehicleÕs internal network. This work was funded by General Motorsand DHS.
