Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Operating system
  • Cryptography
  • Programming language

Christof Paar mostly deals with Cryptography, Embedded system, Encryption, Algorithm and Block cipher. Cryptography is a subfield of Computer security that Christof Paar studies. A large part of his Embedded system studies is devoted to Field-programmable gate array.

He works mostly in the field of Algorithm, limiting it down to concerns involving Finite field and, occasionally, Field, Galois theory, Multiplication and Arithmetic. His Block cipher research integrates issues from Differential, Theoretical computer science, Special case and Cipher. Christof Paar has included themes like CBC-MAC and Running key cipher in his Theoretical computer science study.

His most cited work include:

  • PRESENT: An Ultra-Lightweight Block Cipher (1616 citations)
  • Cryptographic Hardware and Embedded Systems - CHES 2002 (629 citations)
  • Understanding Cryptography: A Textbook For Students And Practitioners (422 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary scientific interests are in Cryptography, Embedded system, Computer security, Field-programmable gate array and Side channel attack. His work deals with themes such as Computer hardware and Key, which intersect with Cryptography. His work investigates the relationship between Key and topics such as Computer network that intersect with problems in Communication channel.

His research on Embedded system also deals with topics like

  • Encryption, which have a strong connection to Firmware,
  • Block cipher which intersects with area such as Advanced Encryption Standard. His work in Field-programmable gate array addresses issues such as Parallel computing, which are connected to fields such as Hardware architecture and Elliptic curve cryptography. His Cryptosystem research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Hyperelliptic curve, Elliptic curve and Arithmetic.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cryptography (38.21%)
  • Embedded system (38.46%)
  • Computer security (24.32%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Reverse engineering (6.95%)
  • Embedded system (38.46%)
  • Computer hardware (11.66%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Reverse engineering, Embedded system, Computer hardware, Trojan and Field-programmable gate array are his primary areas of study. His Embedded system study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Bitstream, Cryptographic primitive, Encryption and Cryptography. In his study, he carries out multidisciplinary Cryptography and Privilege escalation research.

His Computer hardware study also includes

  • Obfuscation, which have a strong connection to Stream cipher,
  • Very-large-scale integration which intersects with area such as Physical design and Structure,
  • Static analysis and related Task. His studies in Field-programmable gate array integrate themes in fields like Bitstream encryption and Application-specific integrated circuit. The various areas that Christof Paar examines in his Hardware Trojan study include Exploit and Side channel attack.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Physical Design Obfuscation of Hardware: A Comprehensive Investigation of Device and Logic-Level Techniques (54 citations)
  • Hardware reverse engineering: Overview and open challenges (24 citations)
  • Bitstream Fault Injections (BiFI)–Automated Fault Attacks Against SRAM-Based FPGAs (24 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Operating system
  • Cryptography
  • Programming language

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Field-programmable gate array, Embedded system, Computer hardware, Trojan and Reverse engineering. His Embedded system research incorporates themes from Bitstream and Bitstream encryption. His work carried out in the field of Bitstream brings together such families of science as File format, Encryption and Integrated circuit.

His Reverse engineering research also works with subjects such as

  • Netlist, which have a strong connection to Obfuscation, Open research, Opaque predicate and Stream cipher,
  • Logic gate, which have a strong connection to Oracle, Computer engineering, Schematic and Distributed computing. His Obfuscation study incorporates themes from Obfuscation and Cryptography. His Cryptography research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Adversary and Static analysis.
