Person large

I am privacy researcher, currently working as a Post Doc with the Open University of The Netherlands.

I finished my PhD on the security of wireless communication technologies such as GSM, GPRS and UMTS.
For this I looked into both theoretical and practical questions on security in the access part of such technologies.
I also proposed improvements to the wireless standards which prevent fake-base station attacks (IMSI catchers).

My current research is mostly focussed on maturing the IRMA (I Reveal My Attributes) technology.
The IRMA technology offers a way to authenticate users based on a subset of their attributes, which results in a very flexible and privacy-friendly eco system.
