Hi, I'm Roman Korkikian.
I am currently a PhD candidate at the Ecole Normale Superieure de Paris (ENS), under the supervision of Pr. David Naccache. I am a member of the ENS Information security group, part of the Computer Science department. I am also a Senior Security Engineer at Nagra SA Switzerland.
My research interests include everything related to:
- Hardware attacks: side-channel and fault analysis, attacks' platforms, samples preparation, etc.
- Efficient programming: protected ciphers implementations, fast data analysis tools, etc.
- Offensive computer technologies: reverse-engineering, fuzzing, etc.
Few academic publications:
Korkikian, Roman, Sylvain Pelissier, and David Naccache. "Blind Fault Attack against SPN Ciphers." Workshop on Fault Diagnosis and Tolerance in Cryptography - FDTC 2014, IEEE, 2014.
- Korkikian, Roman, David Naccache, Guilherme Ozari de Almeida, and Rodrigo Portella do Canto. "Practical Instantaneous Frequency Analysis Experiments." In E-Business and Telecommunications, pp. 17-34. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2014.
