Dmitry Khovratovich is a post-doctoral researcher since January 2012. He specializes in the design and cryptanalysis of symmetric primitives, e.g. hash functions and block ciphers. Dmitry is also interested in the practical aspects of cryptography: electronic currencies, tamper-proof designs, etc.. Dmitry is an author of the first attacks on the AES block cipher in various models, the best attacks on Skein, SHA-1 and SHA-2 hash functions, the attacks on the full versions of ALE, Grindahl-512, Luffa, and many others.
