Projects & Activities
I co-advised several Master theses, and Bachelor student projects, and served as a reviewer for the following venues:
- IEEE S&P student PC – 2018
- IJIS – 2018
- Elsevier COSE – 2017, 2018
- CyberICPS – 2017
- WISTP – 2015, 2017
- EuroSec – 2015
- ICISS – 2014, 2015, 2016
robosec.org - A repository for the output of a joint research on Industrial Robots Security by Politecnico di Milano, and Trend Micro, Inc.
Awesome thesis - While (co-)advising theses, I often suggest several resources to students, and decided to put together a list, that will help them during the process of developing their CS master thesis.
Crave - crAVe is a framework developed at NECSTLab to automatically test and explore the capabilities of generic AV engines. It’s been developed in order to fuel further research, easing the development of scripts to manipulate malware, submit them to scanners (i.e., VirusTotal), retrieve, and analyze results.
Andrototal - AndroTotal is a free service to scan suspicious APKs against multiple mobile antivirus apps, it’s dataset has been shared with academic researchers, and fueled further research on android malware.
I play(ed) CTFs with several teams: TowerOfHanoi, Shellphish, and Mhackeroni. I co-organized PoliCTF 2015, and developed challenges for iCTF 2017 and 2018.
- CTFsubmitter - service for A/D CTFs> keep track, and submit flags from distributed attackers.
- Gandgalf - PoliCTF 2015 challenge> custom DOS executable packer, floppy disk copy protection, and steganography
- Writeups - Capture The Flag writeups
My passion for reverse engineering started with gameboy/color games:
- MMX pack - a pack containing a de/compressor for in-game graphics and a VWF hack for MegaManXtreme/2 GB/C game.
- Star Ocean VWF - VWF hack for Star Ocean Blue Sphere GB/C game.
- VWF GB/C demo - A small demo to test the vwf code on gb/c.
