Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • The Internet
  • Operating system
  • Computer network

His primary scientific interests are in Computer security, Password, Internet privacy, Cognitive password and Password strength. Nicolas Christin merges Computer security with Potential impact in his research. Nicolas Christin combines subjects such as Usability and Authentication with his study of Password.

His Internet privacy research integrates issues from Visual feedback, Anonymity, Law enforcement, Vendor and Demise. His studies deal with areas such as Parameterized complexity, Data mining, Measure and Security audit as well as Cognitive password. His study in the field of Password cracking is also linked to topics like Markov model.

His most cited work include:

  • Bitcoin: economics, technology, and governance (572 citations)
  • Traveling the silk road: a measurement analysis of a large anonymous online marketplace (371 citations)
  • Guess Again (and Again and Again): Measuring Password Strength by Simulating Password-Cracking Algorithms (321 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Computer security, Internet privacy, Password, Usability and Password strength. The various areas that Nicolas Christin examines in his Computer security study include World Wide Web and Mobile device. His Internet privacy study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Service provider and Identification.

His research in Password intersects with topics in Artificial neural network and Resilience. His study in Password strength focuses on Password cracking in particular. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Incentive and Game theory.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Computer security (49.40%)
  • Internet privacy (21.43%)
  • Password (20.83%)

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

  • Computer security (49.40%)
  • Password (20.83%)
  • Internet privacy (21.43%)

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

Nicolas Christin mostly deals with Computer security, Password, Internet privacy, Cryptocurrency and Malware. His work on Chinese wall as part of his general Computer security study is frequently connected to Structure, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. In the field of Password, his study on Password policy and Password strength overlaps with subjects such as Expiration.

His work deals with themes such as Password management, S/KEY and Usability, which intersect with Password policy. His Internet privacy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Social media and Text corpus. His Cryptocurrency research incorporates elements of Database transaction, Cybercrime and Monetary economics, Currency.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • An Empirical Analysis of Traceability in the Monero Blockchain (113 citations)
  • Design and Evaluation of a Data-Driven Password Meter (62 citations)
  • Let's Go in for a Closer Look: Observing Passwords in Their Natural Habitat (45 citations)

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

  • The Internet
  • Operating system
  • Computer network

His primary areas of investigation include Computer security, Password strength, Password, Usability and Traceability. His research on Computer security focuses in particular on Network security. His Password strength research focuses on Cognitive password in particular.

His Cognitive password study combines topics in areas such as Data-driven, Password psychology and Human–computer interaction. While the research belongs to areas of Usability, he spends his time largely on the problem of Software deployment, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Internet privacy. His Traceability study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Database transaction, Database, Cryptocurrency, Volume and Blockchain.
