Christof FERREIRA TORRES received his Master degree in Information and Computer Sciences, from the University of Luxembourg, in 2016. He has worked as a researcher on the security evaluation of mobile payment applications and smart contracts at the department of Service & Application Security at Fraunhofer AISEC in Munich, Germany. His research interests include device fingerprinting and blockchain technologies. Christof joined the Service and Data Management in Distributed Systems group, SEDAN, headed by Dr. Radu State and he will be working under his supervision, on the security and privacy aspects of distributed ledgers.

If you are looking for a Master thesis or a Bachelor thesis, I have a number of projects available:

  • Detecting Cryptomining Malware on the Web
  • Tracing Ethereum Transactions

Please feel free to contact me for more details. I am also open to new ideas as long as they are related to the security or privacy of distributed ledger technologies.
