Concretely, the research project is dealing with biometric recognition in the encrypted domain and we are looking for a talented junior researcher who has expertise in the design and analysis of cryptographic protocols, is familiar with proving such protocols secure in the malicious model, and has some experience with (somewhat) homomorphic encryption schemes. Additionally, the potential candidate should have good programming skills as we aim at the implementation of a research prototype of the to-be-designed cryptographic protocols. Since these protocols will be used in the context of biometric recognition, it is of advantage if the potential candidate has been exposed to some digital signal processing in biometric systems.
