About me

Steffen Wendzel
My name is Steffen Wendzel, I am head of a research team on smart building security at the Fraunhofer FKIE, Bonn. Previously, I was a research assistant at the Augsburg University of Applied Sciences. I studied computer science in Kempten, Augsburg and Hagen and received my PhD in 2013 from the University of Hagen. I gave several talks and started writing books when I was 17 (sold ~47.000 books). A list of my ~100 publications can be found here.

My research involves network information hiding (network covert channels and network steganography), building automation and smart building security, human aspects of information security, and information security terminology / taxonomy.

I am a member of several steering committees, initiatives, programme committees and organizing committees (cf. details). I am (or was) lecturing and supervising at Augsburg University of Applied Sciences, Bonn University and Hagen University. A list of my projects, both funded and spare-time software projects, is also available.

In addition to computer science, I am interested in psychology (which I studied for a few semesters for fun), university history and campus novels.
