Short bio

Prof. Dr. Daniel Slamanig is a Full Professor at the Universität der Bundeswehr München (UniBw M) in its Department of Computer Science and Research Institute Cyber Defense (CODE), where he heads the Quantum Safe & Advanced Cryptography (QuSAC) Lab.

His research interests include various topics in the field of foundations and applications of cryptography. His special focus is on the development of provably secure public-key cryptographic primitives (such as digital signatures) with strong security guarantees (e.g. against quantum attacks) as well as on the foundations of privacy-friendly cryptographic mechanisms (e.g. zero-knowledge proofs). His main focus is always on the relation to real-world applications.

Prior to his appointment at the Universität der Bundeswehr München, Prof. Slamanig worked as a Scientist and then Senior Scientist in the crytography research group of the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology, Austria's largest non-university research institute. During this time, he also worked as a lecturer at the Vienna University of Technology. Before that, he worked as a PostDoc and then as a Senior Researcher at the Institute for Applied Information Processing and Communication Technology (IAIK) at Graz University of Technology, where he established a research group in the field of public-key cryptography. In 2011, he obtained his PhD in computer science in the field of cryptography at the University of Klagenfurt.

Prof. Slamanig's contribution to the international research community is reflected in numerous top-tier publications as well as regular invitations to program committees in top-tier conferences (e.g. CRYPTO, EUROCRYPT, ASIACRYPT, ACM CCS), as a reviewer for scientific journals (e.g. Journal of Cryptology) and for international research funds such as the European Research Council (ERC). In 2018, he was honored with the "netidee SCIENCE" award of the Internet Foundation for his research in the field of cryptographic foundations for future internet security. Prof. Slamanig is one of the designers of the post-quantum signature scheme Picnic, which reached the final round of the Post-Quantum Cryptography Standardization Project of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). He is a member of the International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR) and the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM).
