Short resume

Danny De Cock researches as a post-doc applied cryptography at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in Belgium. Danny is an expert in computer security and industrial cryptography applications and he has conducted extensive research projects in this field.

His work includes the analysis and design of identity management systems and secure communications architectures for various environments and communities. He has also researched security aspects of mobile devices, car telematics, home appliances, the Internet of Things, electronic banking, electronic voting schemes and electronic identity cards.

He was the coordinator of a study for the four Belgian governments to lay out the security architecture and functionality of the electronic voting system for Belgian elections. This system has been deployed for official elections since October 2012.

Danny is involved with different identity management projects to increase Belgian eGovernment efficiency on the regional and federal level, and was in charge of the Modinis-IDM study (http://godot.be/modinis) that was organized by the European Commission to build on expertise and initiatives in the EU Member States to progress towards a coherent approach in electronic identity management in eGovernment in the European Union.

Danny was also the project coordinator of the European Project TAS3 (Trusted Architecture for Securely Shared Services, cf. http://tas3.eu). This project focused on service oriented architectures that deployed in the employability and healthcare sector.

He is also involved in research on computer forensics through the BC-Centre, focusing on the protection of evidence.

Shorter resume

Danny De Cock received a Master's Degree in Computer Science at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (Belgium) in 1996 and a Ph.D in Engineering Science from the same university in 2011. After his studies, he started working as a researcher at the same university's research group ESAT/COSIC, which is specialized in computer security and industrial cryptography applications. He is particularly interested in the specification and follow-up of the electronic voting systems and eID cards being used in Belgium. He is conducting research on the analysis of identity management systems involving strong authentication tokens and their validation mechanisms, on online and electronic voting mechanisms, on computer forensics, on the analysis of smart card and memory card applications and their protection mechanisms, and on the security analysis of wireless chip cards, telematics systems, the Internet of Things, electronic banking and payment systems, and biometric authentication systems.
