Security & privacy in a post-quantum world

Privacy is a natural need that is not only important for individuals but also for the evolution of society. This includes online privacy as a lot of social interaction happens over the Internet. In this talk I explain what connects the rather mathematical topic of post-quantum cryptography to the social question of online privacy. Afterwards I will give a brief introduction to post-quantum cryptography and highlight some recent developments in the area.

About Andreas Hülsing

Andreas is a postdoctoral researcher at TU Eindhoven working with Tanja Lange in the PQCRYPTO project. His research focuses on post-quantum cryptography - cryptography secure against quantum computer-aided attacks. Andreas goal is to get post-quantum cryptography into practice. To achieve this goal, he is working with several standardization bodies, including IETF and ETSI, besides his research.

Before his current position, Andreas was a postdoctoral researcher in the cryptographic implementations group at TU Eindhoven, working with Daniel J. Bernstein. He did his PhD in the cryptography and computer algebra group at TU Darmstadt under the supervision of Johannes Buchmann. Before starting his PhD, he worked as a research fellow at Fraunhofer SIT in Darmstadt. Andreas holds a Diploma in computer science from TU Darmstadt.
