Topic: New Arithmetic for Cryptography and Coding with DFT over Finite Fields and Rings
Professor, Istanbul Sehir University, Istanbul, Turkey &
University of California Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara, USA
Çetin Kaya Koç received his Ph.D. in Electrical & Computer Engineering from University of California Santa Barbara in 1988. He was an Assistant Professor at University of Houston (1988-1992), Assistant, Associate and Full Professor at Oregon State University (1992-2007). He established Information Security Laboratory at Oregon State University, and received Award for Outstanding and Sustained Research Leadership in September 2001.
His research interests are in cryptographic hardware and embedded systems, secure hardware design,side-channel attacks and countermeasures, algorithms and architectures for computer arithmetic and finite fields.
Currently, Koç is a professor of computer science at Istanbul Şehir University and an adjunct professor in the Department of Computer Science and the College of Creative Studies at University of California Santa Barbara. He is also managing two technology companies in Santa Barbara, which he co-founded. These companies, CryptoCode and Intryca, are developing cryptography and security products and services for mobile and embedded systems.
Topic: Leakage-Resilient Cryptography: a Practical Overview
Professor, Universiteit Catholique de Louvain,
UCL Crypto Group, Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium
Francois-Xavier Standaert was born in Brussels, Belgium in 1978. He received the Electrical Engineering degree and PhD degree from the Universite catholique de Louvain, respectively in June 2001 and June 2004. In 2004-2005, he was a Fulbright visiting researcher at Columbia University, Department of Computer Science, Network Security Lab and at the MIT Medialab, Center for Bits and Atoms. In March 2006, he was a founding member of IntoPix s.a. From 2005 to 2008, he was a post-doctoral researcher of the UCL Crypto Group and a regular visitor of the two aforementioned laboratories. Since September 2008, he is associate researcher of the Belgian Fund for Scientific Research (F.R.S.-FNRS) and professor at the UCL Microelectronics Laboratory.
His research interests include digital electronics, FPGAs and cryptographic hardware, low power implementations for constrained environments (RFIDs, sensor networks, ...), the design and cryptanalysis of symmetric cryptographic primitives, physical security isssues in general and side-channel analysis in particular.
