I am a faculty member at the School of Computer Science at Tel Aviv University.

My research focus is information security, cryptography and algorithms. I'm particularly interested in what happens when cryptographic systems meet the real world, where computation is faulty and leaky.

In the Laboratory for Experimental Information Security (LEISec), my group investigates side-channel information leakage in computers, through physical emanations (e.g., acoustic and electric) and software (e.g., cache contention in cloud computing).

In SCIPR Lab, we construct cryptographic systems for ensuring the integrity of computation conducted on untrusted, faulty and malicious platforms.



(Within each topic, in reverse chronological order.)

Computational proofs: ensuring correct execution of programs running on untrusted platforms

Side-channel attacks: extracting secret keys by eavesdropping on program execution

Leakage resilience, tamper resilience and homomorphic encryption: protecting computation from leakage and corruption

Digital currency and auctions

Special-purpose code-breaking hardware


Systems security — additional aspects

Observations in theoretical computer science
