Prof. N. Asokan is a Professor of Computer Science at Aalto University and the University of Helsinki. Between 1995 and 2012, he worked in industrial research laboratories designing and building secure systems, first at the IBM Zurich Research Laboratory and then at Nokia Research Center. His primary research interest has been in applying cryptographic techniques to design secure protocols for distributed systems. Recently, he has also been investigating the use of Trusted Computing technologies for securing end nodes, and ways to make secure systems usable, especially in the context of mobile devices. Asokan is a coauthor of over 80 research papers in international conferences and journals. He is a co-inventor of 41 granted patents. Asokan and his group pioneered early academic research involving trusted execution environments (TEEs) in mobile devices with their work on On-board Credentials. Asokan serves on the editorial board of IEEE Security & Privacy and the Proceedings of Privacy Enhancing Technologies (PoPETS). He has previously served on the editorial boards of ACM Transactions on Information and Systems Security, Computer Communications, and IEEE Network and on the steering committees of ACM WiSec and ACM SPSM. In 2013, he was selected for a Google Faculty Research Award for his work on contextual security. He is an ACM Distinguished Scientist and an IEEE Senior Member.
