His research interests include applied cryptography, biometrics and the interface between cryptography and biometrics.

Applied cryptography

  • AV-net (anonymous vet)
  • J-PAKE (password-based key exchange
  • YAK (PKI-based key exchange)
  • Open Vote Network (decentralized e-voting)
  • DRE-i (centralized e-voting)


  • Fast search algorithm for a large iris-code database
  • Handwritten signature verification

 Biometric cryptosystems

  • Combining crypto with biometrics effectively through error correction code
  • Generating stable bits from handwritten signature through quantization
