Mathias Ekstedt is Professor of Industrial Information and Control Systems at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden. He received his M.Sc. and Ph.D. from the Royal Institute of Technology in 1999 and 2004 respectively.
Mathias' research interests include information and cyber security based on software and systems architecture modeling and analysis. In particular the research is applied in the power industry and information systems related to physical process monitoring and control, such as SCADA and Industrial Control Systems. Much of the research revolves around developing formalisms for analyzing security vulnerabilities of system-of-systems architectures trough the means of probabilistic attack/defense graphs.
Mathias belongs to the Software Systems Architecture and Security group where more information about ongoing activities can be found.
