Phillip Rogaway

Phillip Rogaway (c. 1962) is an American computer scientist who deals with cryptography.

Rogaway studied from 1980 at the University of California, Berkeley, with a bachelor 's degree in 1985 and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) with a Master 's degree in 1988 ( Everything provable is provable in zero knowledge ) and the PhD in 1991 with Silvio Micali ( The round complexity of secure protocols ). He then worked for IBM and was from 1994 professor at the University of California, Davis.

He is a regular guest professor at Chiang Mai University in Thailand.

He conducts research on the said of him practice oriented provable security area provably secure cryptographic protocols and developed by Mihir Bellare the random oracle model (random oracle model). He also led the Methods of Optimal Asymmetric Encryption Padding ( OAEP ), which has now been standardized, and Probabilistic Signature Scheme (PSS ) a.

With Don Coppersmith he developed at IBM, the stream cipher SEAL.

In 2009 he was awarded with Bellare the Paris Kanellakis Prize for practice - oriented provable security. In 2003 he was awarded the RSA Award for Mathematics. In 1996 he received an NSF Career Award. He is a Fellow of the International Association for Cryptologic Research ( IACR ).
