Personal profile

Overview

Dr. Hector Marco-Gisbert, MIEEE, BSc (Hons) in Computer Engineering, MSc in Industrial Computing and Control Systems and PhD in Engineering in Computer Science, Cybersecurity with maximum distinctions. 

Area of academic expertise - outline

Initially, he participated in several research projects where the main goal was to develop an hypervisor for the next generation of space crafts for the ESA (European Space Agency). He extend the scope of the  projects by including security aspects. After more than 6 years of experience in virtualisation, he shifted deeper to Cybersecurity making substantial contributions to the Linux kernelGlibcGRUB and other open software projects. Since then, he has accumulated more than 5 years of experience in low level Cybersecurity receiving awards and recognitions from GooglePacket Storm Security and IBM for his security contributions. Currently, he is lecturer in Cybersecurity and Virtualisation at the University of the West of Scotland, Glasgow, UK.

Current research activities

Cyber Security at different levels:           
   - Operating System security: KASLR, Multitenancy, vTPM, etc.
   - Native application security: ASLR-NG, RenewSSP, CFI, etc.
   - Browser security: SOP, web firewall, etc.

 

Desired research direction

His main interests background and research includes to identify and thwart critical real security threats focusing on servers and smartphone platforms. From multi tenancy at operating system level in cloud environments to the design of practical low level attacks and protection techniques at Kernel or user level.
