Research Interests

My current research interests focus on these topics:

  • Security and trust in Delay-Tolerant Networks
  • Man-in-the-middle detection in key exchange protocols (ZRTP, AKE, …)
  • Interaction-free security based on physical context (ambient audio, human gait, …)
  • Usable security
  • Android security
My research and development is influenced by my moral beliefs. They are based on the "Cypherpunk's Manifesto" (Eric Hughes, 1993) and modern critiques of our research field, such as "The Moral Character of Cryptographic Work" (Phillip Rogaway, 2015):
"Cryptography rearranges power: it configures who can do what, from what. This makes cryptography an inherently political tool, and it confers on the field an intrinsically moral dimension. The Snowden revelations motivate a reassessment of the political and moral positioning of cryptography. They lead one to ask if our inability to effectively address mass surveillance constitutes a failure of our field. I believe that it does. I call for a community-wide effort to develop more effective means to resist mass surveillance. I plead for a reinvention of our disciplinary culture to attend not only to puzzles and math, but, also, to the societal implications of our work."
