Konstantinos Draziotis

Assistant Professor - Department of Informatics, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki

Konstantinos Draziotis obtained a degree in mathematics from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, as well and his doctorate, from the mathematics department to the same university. Today he is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Informatics of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. His research interests include computational number theory, mathematics cryptography and Algebraic Geometry with emphasis on Diophantics equations.

Cybersecurity in quantum era

Cybersecurity is the practice of protecting information in digital systems, hardware and software, from digital attacks. A possible construction of a large quantum computer will undermine the current cryptographic algorithms, which are widely used on the internet. The attacks based on quantum computers have an impact on digital systems. Therefore, Cybersecurity plays a key role, at this point, in securing these systems from the quantum attacks. The Cryptographic community is, consequently, in a constant race to find efficient quantum resistant cryptosystems, which we often referred to as post quantum cryptography. In this talk, we will attempt to shed more light on post quantum cryptographic primitives and how these will shape the new security protocols.
