Steffen has written five books and his research focuses on information hiding and security in the Internet of Things. He is a member of the editorial board of the Journal of Universal Computer Science and of the Journal of Cyber Security and Mobility.

Steffen’s primary research domain is network information hiding. In particular, he has published work on network covert channel patterns, terminology and taxonomy of information hiding, scientific methodology in network steganography, and detection and limitation of illegitimate data transfers. His papers have been published in several key journals and conferences including Communications of the ACM, ACMComputing Surveys, IEEE Security & Privacy, Security & Communication Networks, and IEEE Local Computer Networks. He also serves as a reviewer for several ranked journals and conferences.
