This talk will give a brief introduction of information security and cryptography. In addition, linkage between information security and cryptography with healthcare will be presented. The current security trend of healthcare will be included in this talk too.
My research interests fall to information security and cryptography area. More precisely, I focus in the area of attacking and designing cryptographic primitives which are the main building block in constructing a security system. These cryptographic primitives include block cipher, stream cipher, hash function, message authentication code, certificateless encryption and signature, proxy signature and blind signature. In the past five years (2008-2013), as a research engineer at Cryptography and Security Department, Institute for Infocomm Research, Singapore, I have been the member of various research projects, funded by Singapore government relatedagencies, Japan KDDI R&D Laboratories and other industry companies. I am one of the designer of MASHA stream cipher and had published a number of papers in analyzing the security of standardized symmetric key ciphers, such as GCM, SEED, MISTY1, K2 and CSA. Currently, I work as a senior lecturer at Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. Besides, I am a reviewer and a program committee for a number of cryptography and security based conferences and journals.
