Lecturer, Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Australia
The Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in Brisbane, Australia, invites applications for full-time Lecturer positions starting in 2012. Areas of interest include cryptography, information security, network security, and digital forensics.
Appointee(s) will undertake their research in QUT\'s Information Security Institute, a multi-disciplinary institute bringing together information security researchers from computer science, mathematics, engineering, business, and law, with a leading national profile and strong international links.
Applicants should have completed (or be under examination for) a PhD in computer science, mathematics, or a related area and be early career researchers (less than three years in an academic role). Appointee(s) will develop and maintain an active research program, teach at undergraduate and graduate levels, supervise research students, and participate in QUT\'s Early Career Academic Development program.
Miroslav Knezevic: Efficient Hardware Implementations of Cryptographic Primitives
Efficient Hardware Implementations of Cryptographic Primitives
Society is undergoing a paradigm shift where the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) revolution goes along with the evolution of the humankind. The Internet is all around us and plays a crucial role in our ability to communicate. We often distribute our personal and other classified information using the benefits of the global network. Our demands to conceal confidential data are therefore being strongly manifested and become very important. By ensuring the objectives of information security, such as confidentiality, data integrity, entity authentication, non-repudiation, and many more, cryptography provides a natural solution to the issue of data protection.\r\n
\r\nThe ICT revolution has driven cryptography from the art of secret writing into a multidisciplinary scientific study of techniques for securing digital information. While providing aspects of information security, cryptography uses complex mathematical objects and often represents a bottleneck in hardware and software implementations. The research presented in this thesis deals with efficient hardware implementations of cryptographic primitives.\r\n
\r\nThe first part of the thesis is devoted to efficient[...]
