Digital identity and Privacy Enhancement Working Group
Digital identity and privacy enhancement serve as fundamental cornerstones for the development of modern digital society and the digital industry, ensuring the security of our personal identities, transaction data, and more on the internet. Secure identification technology not only reduces the risks of hacking and phishing but also prevents counterfeiting and fraud. Strengthening privacy protection also prevents the leakage of personal or company confidential information. In the context of increasingly frequent online services and internet transactions, prioritizing digital identity and privacy protection contributes to establishing a secure and reliable digital environment.
Peter Schwabe, PhD
Peter Schwabe is research group leader at MPI-SP and professor at Radboud University.
He graduated from RWTH Aachen University in computer science in 2006 and received a Ph.D. from the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science of Eindhoven University of Technology in 2011.
He then worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Information Science and the Research Center for Information Technology Innovation of Academia Sinica, Taiwan and
at National Taiwan University.
His research area is cryptographic engineering; in particular the security and performance of cryptographic software.
He published more than 60 articles in journals and at international conferences presenting,
for example, fast software for a variety of cryptographic primitives including AES, hash functions, elliptic-curve cryptography, and cryptographic pairings. He has also published articles on fast cryptanalysis, in particular attacks on the discrete-logarithm problem. In recent years he has focused in particular on post-quantum cryptography.
He co-authored the "NewHope" and "NTRU-HRSS" lattice-based key-encapsulation schemes which were used in post-quantum TLS experiments by Google and he is co-submitter of seven proposals to the NIST post-quantum crypto project, all of which made it to the second round, five of which made it to the third round, and 3 of which were selected after round 3 for standardization.
In 2021, he co-founded the Formosa-Crypto project, an effort by multiple research groups to build (post-quantum) cryptographic software with formal proofs of functional correctness and security.
