ACE Seminar: Cryptography in Practice

Speaker: Dr Liqun Chen

Date/Time: 15-Sep-2016, 16:00 UTC

Venue: MPEB 1.02



Cryptography is a core technology supporting cyber security. Making cryptographic algorithms and protocols suitable for use in the real world is a challenge. In this seminar I will talk about my experience as a cryptographer working in industry for almost 20 years. I will illustrate this with several examples from my work for Hewlett Packard and from my collaborations with members of the Trusted Computing Group.


Dr. Liqun Chen is currently a principal research scientist at Hewlett Packard Laboratories in Bristol, UK. Prior to joining HP, she worked at Southeast University, the University of Oxford and Royal Holloway. She is known for her work in both the cryptographic and trusted computing communities. She designed some of the cryptographic algorithms used in the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) of the Trusted Computing Group (TCG). She has also developed several cryptographic schemes adopted by ISO/IEC and IEEE. Liqun has served as editor, or co-editor, for six ISO/IEC standard documents. She holds 59 granted US patents in cryptography and information security and has an extensive publication record. She has recently resigned her current position in Hewlett Packard Labs in order to take up a chair in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Surrey in October.
