Author: Mohamed Bourimi


graduated from the University of Dortmund in 2002 and holds a degree in computer science (Diplom-Informatiker with distinction). Mohamed is working now as a research assistant at the IT Security chair (USIEGEN) since 2009. He contributed as developer, consultant as well as technical project leader to various research and industrial projects (e.g., CURE - Collaborative Universal Remote Education platform, an integral of the virtual room of the German distance learning University in Hagen, "Offenlegung" sub-component of the SAMBAplus banking product at Logica GmbH Deutschland, EU FP7 PICOS, etc.). He is also certified in Scrum, ITIL v3, and in IBM Enterprise Technologies and Mainframes. Currently Mohamed is mainly contributing to the EU FP7 project as leader of WP4 concerned with the development of the “Trust, Privacy and Security Infrastructure”. He also has more than 15 international publications related to his research interests on non-functional requirements and software engineering for distributed and collaborative Systems by focusing on human factors in relationship with usability and security engineering.
