Daniel Slamanig


Daniels' main research interests are in the field of cryptography and privacy with a focus on practical public key cryptographic primitives, privacy-preserving cryptography, their foundations and their applications in emerging fields such as cloud computing and the Internet of Things (IoT).

Matteo Maffei

Co-PI / TU Wien

Matteos' research interests concentrate on formal methods for the verification of security and privacy properties, with a specific focus on web, mobile, and cryptographic applications, and applied cryptography, in particular privacy-preserving solutions for outsourced storage, analytics, distributed computation, and blockchain.

Christoph Striecks

Postdoc / AIT

Christophs' research focus lies mainly in the field of modern cryptographic building blocks, in particular, in form of identity-based and attribute-based encryption as well as digital signatures. On the application level, he is mainly interested in modern connected systems with an emphasis on enhanced security features (e.g., forward secrecy) and resource-asymmetric devices (e.g., the Internet of Things).

Valerio Cini

PhD Student / AIT

Valerios' main research interest lies in the field of modern cryptography in the direction of provable security. In particular he is involved/fascinated by the growing area/field of post-quantum cryptography (e.g. lattice based crypto) and its possible applications.

Erkan Tairi

PhD Student / TU Wien

Erkans' research interests include cryptography and privacy, with a specific focus on public key cryptography and foundations of cryptography, along with secure and efficient implementation of cryptographic primitives and protocols.
