Corinna Schmitt

is key researcher at SBA Research and researcher & laboratory supervisor at the Research Institute CODE, University of Federal Armed Forces Munich.

Research Interests

Corinna’s research interests focus on topics in the area of Internet of Things (IoT) including issues such as constrained networks, security and privacy issues, as well as mobile communication (e.g., IEEE 802.15.4, LoRaWAN) and network management. The investigated application area ranges from smart environments over critical infrastructures to military environments. For a small insight-glimpse see SecureWSN.

Her work is documented in more than 30 publications, including several book chapters and journal articles, as well as the RFC 8272 on TinyIPFIX for Smart Meters in Constrained Networks, and the ITU-T recommendation Y.3013 on Socio-economic Assessment of Future Networks by Tussle Analysis. She contributed to several EU projects (e.g., CONCORDIA, symbIoTe, SmartenIT, FLAMINGO, AutHoNe) and different standardization organizations (IETF, ITU, ASUT) until now and continues with these activities and recruit research funds continuously.


Corinna received her Venia Legendi in the area of Informatics for livetime from the University of Zurich (Switzerland) 2021 after her employment there from spring 2013 to May 2018. She was member of the Communication Systems Group (CSG) as Head of Mobile and Trusted Communications with focus on secure IoT. With this focus she continued her work at Technische Universität München (Germany) where she received her Dr. rer. nat. (PhD) in 2013 building on topics of her diploma study in Bioinformatics from the Eberhard-Karls Universität Tübingen (Germany).

After several years of visiting status at the group of Prof. Dr. Gabi Dreo-Rodosek at the University of Federal Armed Forces Munich (Germany) she joined the affiliated Research Institute CODE as researcher and laboratory supervisor. Her focus on secure IoT got extended by critical infrastructures and more complex systems. She extended the local teaching curriculum with IoT, secure mobile systems, and questions around the crime scene IoT.  During the last years together with her Ph.D. candidates she won several awards on IEEE/ACM conferences and forces standardization in the area of secure and reliable communication.
