Who Am I About Me

Hi! I'm Abdel

I am currently a PhD researcher at CryptoExperts company and LIP6 laboratory in Paris, France. My field of research is the security and verification of cryptographic implementations in the random probing model against side-channel attacks.

What I Do Services

Cryptography Research

My thesis at CryptoExperts with LIP6 laboratory at Sorbonne University is focused on cryptography. Specifically, I am currently doing research on secure and verified cryptographic implementations against side-channel attacks in the random probing model.

Software Development

My three year bachelor degree in computer science have prepared me to be a part of any software development project. The next years of my career helped me concentrate my skills in the cryptography and cybersecurity domain.

Consulting

One of the main skills I am currently developing during my thesis at CryptoExperts is my ability to judge and review cryptographic implementations, specifications and protocols.
