Dr. Angelos Keromytis joined DARPA in July 2014. His research interests include computer systems, network security and cryptography.
Dr. Keromytis came to DARPA from the National Science Foundation (NSF) division of Computer and Network Systems where he was responsible for the Secure and Trustworthy Cyberspace (SaTC) program and the NSF/Intel Labs partnership on Cyber-Physical Systems Security and Privacy (CPS-Security).
Dr. Keromytis is on leave from Columbia University in New York City, where he is an associate professor in the computer science department. He was also the chief architect of Allure Security Technology Inc., a company that he co-founded to commercialize technology that protects against information leakage/exfiltration and provides early warning, as well as possible identification, of malicious insiders in an organization. Dr. Keromytis has been an active participant in the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), and, in particular, the Internet Protocol Security (IPsec) and Internet Protocol Security Protocol (IPSP) working groups. He contributed to the OpenBSD operating system, serving as the primary author of the IPsec stack and the OpenBSD Cryptographic Framework (OCF), which was later ported to FreeBSD and NetBSD.
Dr. Keromytis holds a Bachelor of Science in computer science from the University of Crete (1996), a Master of Science in computer science from the University of Pennsylvania (1997) and a Doctor of Philosophy in computer science from the University of Pennsylvania (2001). He has published extensively on the topics of computer science and information security, including over 40 articles in refereed journals and over 130 conference papers. He is co-inventor on 30 patents and was elected an Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Distinguished Scientist in 2012.
