Gildas Avoine is professor of information security and
cryptography at both the UCL in Louvain-la-Neuve (Belgium)
and INSA Rennes (France) Previously, he was postdoctoral
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 computer

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.
