NorthSec 2019 speaker: Christian Paquin

I am a cryptography specialist in Microsoft Research’s Security and Cryptography team. I’m currently involved in projects related to post-quantum cryptography, such as the Open Quantum Safe project. I’m also leading the development of the U-Prove technology. I’m also interested in privacy-enhancing technologies, smart cloud encryption (e.g., searchable and homomorphic encryption), and the intersection of AI and security.

Prior to joining Microsoft in 2008, I was the Chief Security Engineer at Credentica, a crypto developer at Silanis Technology working on digital signature systems, and a security engineer at Zero-Knowledge Systems working on TOR-like systems.

Post-Quantum Cryptography: today's defense against tomorrow's quantum hackers

I present Post-Quantum Cryptography designed to resist attacks by quantum computers, and describe our expirements in integrating it into protocols such as TLS, SSH, and VPN.
