09/1996 - 12/1999 Ph.D. degree in Information Security, at Royal Holloway, University of London.
For my PhD thesis ("Secure Logging Mechanisms for Smart cards") I investigated how log files could be effectively maintained within smart cards. Furthermore, I also designed and implemented, in Java cards, some secure log file download protocols. These protocols securely extract the log files from the card and send them in another entity which does not suffer from immediate storage restrictions. My PhD research was sponsored by Mondex International Ltd. and my supervisors were Prof. Chris Mitchell and Prof. Dieter Gollmann.
