09/01/2017

Roland van Rijswijk-Deij (SURFnet and University of Twente) has been awarded the Applied Networking Research Prize by the IRTF (Internet Research Task Force). He investigated the use of elliptic curve cryptography (ECC) in combination with DNSSEC. ECC is a type of public-key encryption based on elliptic curves. ECC offers more protection, but places a greater burden on hardware.
