Invited talk at CSAW'19 (IIT Kanpur, Nov. 6). Title: With and Without Blockchain: Why Is (or Is Not) It a Big Deal
1-day Tutorial at NIT Raipur on Blockchain Basics (Oct. 18)
This 2019-20-M semester I am teaching CS601 Cryptographic Protocols (this course provides the foundation for understanding the nitty-gritty of Blockchain-based applications).
I am an associate professor in the department EECS of IIT Bhilai. Earlier, I used to work as an assistant professor of CSE at IIT Gandhinagar (Jul. 2014 - Oct. 17). I obtained BE, MTech and PhD degrees, respectively, from Jadavpur University (1994 - 98), Indian Statistical Institute (1999 - 01) and KU Leuven (2001 - 06). I spent a long span of time (about 14 years) working as a doctoral, postdoctoral and a guest researcher at various data security research groups in Europe, USA, and Canada, namely, COSIC, KU Leuven (2001 - 08), CSD, NIST, USA (2008 - 12) and CrySP, Univ. of Waterloo (2012 - 14). In addition to carrying out academic research in computer security, I was, in the past, directly involved with (and a major technical contributor to) two cryptographic standardization projects of global impact: ECRYPT-eSTREAM (organized by the European Union, 2005-2008) and SHA-3 (organized by NIST, Govt. of USA, 2007-2012). Currently, I lead multiple Indian initiatives (undertaken by the Bureau of Indian Standards) in standardizing Blockchain-based applications under various ISO projects.

(Recent past) Design and analysis of cryptographic primitives and modes.
Since 2001, my research has always centered on cryptography, data security and related areas.All publications
