Biography

Dr Ron Steinfeld is a Lecturer in the Faculty of Information Technology.

Research interests

Currently, my main research interests are in the design and analysis of cryptographic algorithms and protocols, and the formulation and proof of their security properties. Specific areas I have worked on include: pseudorandom bit generators, cryptographic hash functions, public key encryption, digital signatures, signcryption, secure multiparty computation protocols, and the application of lattice basis reduction algorithms in cryptology and computational number theory.
