I am primarily interested in all aspects
of security in distributed systems. I have been working on applying
cryptographic techniques in building secure protocols to solve various
problems in distributed systems. Recently, I have also been
investigating the use of Trusted Computing technologies for securing
endnodes, and ways to make secure systems usable.
