About


I am a post-doctoral scholar at the Norwegian University of Science of Technology, working with Professor Bian Yang. I worked during my PhD on trusted computing, trusted execution environments and online user authentication. 

My current research interests are:
  • Online identity management, namely self-sovereign identities. 
  • Applied cryptography, namely, proxy re-encryption
  • Verifiable Remote Computation
More broadly:
  • I care a lot about end-point security, and consider it the next playground for the privacy fight. Therefore, I support and work on enabling a wider awareness and deployment of open source  trustworthy end-point software such as Qubes Os.
  • Making security solutions universally accessible for all types of users, including visually-disabled ones. 
  • Exploring different applications of security-by-deception.

Personal


I was born in Morocco, and grew up in different cities across both its Atlantic ocean and Atlas Mountains: Larache, Tangier, and Ifrane. I've also often went back to Ouezzane where my extended family and grand-parents lived. I currently live in Oslo, Norway, to which I moved in 2014 to pursue my PhD studies. In my spare time, I enjoy walking outdoors. I equally enjoy staying indoors to refine cooking old recipes and try new ones. I'll probably update this page with some more relevant content as I become more comfortable with the idea of online social sharing, which I have intentionally avoided taking part it so far.
