Dr. Andy Rupp
Dr. Andy Rupp is the Head of the Research Group Cryptographic Protocols (CRYPO) located at the University of Luxembourg and the KASTEL Security Research Labs. At KASTEL SRL he is also a Principal Investigator and the Spokesperson of the ESS-Research Group Secure Computation and Communication. Before, he was the Deputy Head of the Security and Networking Lab at the University of Luxembourg and the Head of the KIT Junior Research Group CyPhyCrypt.
Andy's research aims at bridging the gap between novel cryptographic theory on the one hand and security and privacy mechanisms suitable for real-world application scenarios. To this end, he develops dedicated security models, crypto primitives, and protocol building blocks which need to be composed very carefully to obtain provably secure, yet practical systems.
