I am an Indian citizen living in Sweden since 2015. I am currently a PhD student in Industrial Electronics. I received my Bachelor degree in Computer Science Engineering from Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University. I worked for Honeywell Technology Solutions in India as a software engineer for testing the aircraft cockpit display software. I received my Masters degree in Information Security from Luleå University of Technology.
My present research area is Authentication and Authorisation of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) devices as part of Productive 4.0 project. The primary focus is on developing a secure and fine-grained access control module, which handles different IoT protocols. This module will be part of Arrowhead Framework (an IoT framework for Industrial applications). My work also includes developing a blockchain based solution to enable service exchange between local clouds that use different access control models (such as Identity-based access control, billing-based access control, attribute-based access control etc.) making the framework suitable for all sort of industries.
