Notice for students interested in working with me
I am a professor in the Department of Computer Science at Bar Ilan University. Prior to coming to Bar-Ilan in 2004, I was a Raviv Postdoctoral fellow in the Cryptographic Research Group at the IBM T.J.Watson Research Center. I received my Ph.D. in 2002 from the Weizmann Institute of Science, under the supervision of Oded Goldreich and Moni Naor.
I am the director of the Bar-Ilan Center for Research in Applied Cryptography and Cyber Security.
I am currently involved in a new company called Dyadic Security that is involved in applying secure computation to the critical problem of server breach.
More about my research projects can be found here.
See the Cryptography Research Group homepage for more information about cryptography research and activities at Bar-Ilan.
I was the program chair for TCC 2014; download the call for papers.
I was a program committee member for the following conferences:
Co-organizer of the following workshops:
