Dr. Kienzle is currently conducting research on measuring and ensuring the integrity of a virtual machine from a vantage point outside the virtual machine. Previously, he conducted applied research projects for internal teams, redesigned and rewrote the correlation engine in Symantec Incident Manager, developed an accelerated scan-detection engine for Symantec Managed Security Service, built a prototype single-instance cluster-store to eliminate redundancy in Norton Ghost backups, and developed a prototype honeyclient to locate malicious web sites.
Previously, as a Principal Scientist with McAfee Research, Dr. Kienzle led a team that performed both government and internal research projects. He prototyped enhancements to the McAfee Desktop Firewall product and invented techniques for rogue machine detection (for ePolicy Orchestrator) and correlation of host IDS events (for worm discovery). Prior to that, as a Senior Information Security Engineer with The MITRE Corporation, Dr. Kienzle supported secure e-commerce efforts for the NSA and assurance efforts for the DARPA Information Assurance program.
