Thomas Eisenbarth ist Professor für IT Sicherheit an der Universität zu Lübeck. Er studierte bis 2006 Elektro- und Informationstechnik an der Ruhr Universität Bochum, wo er bis 2009 am Horst Görtz Institut für IT-Sicherheit promovierte. Ab 2010 forschte er als Assistant Professor am Center for Cryptography and Information Security (CCIS) an der Florida Atlantic University. 2012 wechselte er an das Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI). Seit August 2017 ist er als Direktor des Instituts für IT Sicherheit an der Universität zu Lübeck.

Seine Forschungsinteressen umfassen:

  • Systemsicherheit und Sichere Mikroarchitekturen
  • Angewandte Kryptografie
  • Seitenkanalangriffe, physische Sicherheit und Gegenmaßnahmen
  • Sicherheit von Cloud und virtualisierten Systemen
