Gildas Avoine is professor of information security and
cryptography at the UCL in Louvain-la-Neuve (Belgium), where
he leads the Information Security Group (GSI) in the
Department of Computing Science and Engineering. Before
joining the UCL, he was researcher at the MIT (USA) hosted
by Ron Rivest in the CSAIL, and at the EPFL (Switzerland) in
the LASEC headed by Serge Vaudenay, where he obtained a PhD
degree in cryptography. Previously, he studied at the
University of Caen (France) where he received a Bachelor
degree in mathematics and Bachelor and Master degrees in

My research activities relate to cryptography and information security, especially cryptographic protocols. My recent works addressed fair exchange protocols, time-memory trade-offs, non-adjacent form representations, but also and mostly authentication in radio-frequency (RFID) systems, from both theoretical and practical approaches.
