Areas of interest

  • security
  • formal methods
  • cryptography
  • analysis tools
  • protocols and standards

My research centers around the application of formal methods and cryptography to the analysis and development of secure systems. The resulting contributions include:

  1. Formal foundations of security

    How to mathematically define secure systems and their properties, and how to reason about them. For example,

  2. Supportive technologies

    We develop automated tools for analysing security protocols:

    A feature comparison of our tools is also available.

  3. Application example: Improving security standards

    We have used our analysis methods and tools in many real-world case studies, yielding direct impact. For example:

A complete list of publications, recent manuscripts, and bibtex files can be found here.
