The researches undertaken in the QualSec cryptography and computer security group are dedicated to the design and analysis of cryptographic protocols and to the cryptanalysis (side channel attacks) of cryptographic devices. In addition to their researches, the members of the QualSec cryptography and computer security group are involved in consulting and training missions for the industry.
Part of the Computer Science Department of the Science Faculty of the Universite Libre de Bruxelles, the ULB QualSec Research Lab gathers 2 full–‐time, 3 post–‐docs and 6 PhD students with backgrounds from computer science, telecommunications and mathematics. The research group has developed an a thorough knowledge and expertise in the design and analysis of cryptographic protocols (fair exchange, non–‐repudiation protocols, evoting, certified emails, …), in physical attacks based on hardware systems based on machine learning techniques and in countermeasures against side channel attacks. Its academic activity produced more than 50 international publications over the last 5 years. The list of publications of the ULB QualSec Research Lab is available here.
