We are proud to announce that we could win another excellent candidate for NXP filling our second open ESR position. Dusan will complete the ECRYPT-NET team at NXP (Ventzi, Miro, Florian and Simon -- see our last post) in October.
Dusan will conduct research on cryptography for passively powered devices. Current countermeasures against physical attacks focus on specific attacks and therefore fail against combined (e.g., fault and differential power) attacks. However, the overhead for adding such countermeasures is enormous. Dusan will investigate new methods (like threshold implementations) and design approaches (e.g., leakage resilient crypto). In addition, his goal - as well as Simon's - is to target efficiency in dedicated hardware and/or embedded software.
Welcome Dusan! We wish you an exciting and successful time within ECRYPT-NET. Now, the ECRYPT-NET team at NXP is looking forward to the first meeting of the complete ECRYPT-NET family co-located with the IACR School on Design and Security of Cryptographic Algorithms and Devices on Sardinia in October.
