DFG Project

This is my first DFG funded project as a principal investigator. The project is a collaboration with Vladislav Mladenov

In this project, we will elaborate on three security topics related to PDF documents: usage and detection of PDF-malware, tampering digitally signed PDFs, and discovering of privacy leaks in PDFs. Finally, countermeasures hardening the PDF document format and the implementations will we proposed.
