Ángel Longueira-Romero

Bio

I am a researcher currently working in the Industrial Cybersecurity Team at IKERLAN in the Basque Country, Spain. I also actively collaborate with Mondragon University with the data analysis and cybersecurity research group.

I hold a Master's degree in Automation Engineering and Industrial Informatics, and a Bachelor's degree in Industrial Electronics and Automation Engineering, both from the University of Oviedo. I also hold a Ph.D. in vulnerability analysis in embedded systems from Mondragon University.

You can download a copy of my Curriculum vitae.

Research Interests

My research focuses on embedded system security. I am interested in quantitative vulnerability analysis, risk anlaysis, metric aggregation, and all the standards that surround this topic, such as the ISA/IEC 62443 standard, or the CPE, CWE, CVE, CVSS, or CAPEC. You can take a look to the more than 500 security metrics that we reviewed.

Even though I do not work directly on these topics, I also enjoy doing my own reserach / training in areas such as pentesting, hardware security, and PKI.

Because of my background, I usually work on my own projects about electronics. I am passionate about designing and building circuits, PCBs, vacuum tubes and solid state amplifiers and anything of this kind.
