Hosted panel discussion and Q&A.

Christian Paquin Principal Program Manager, Microsoft Research

I am a crypto/security specialist in MSR’s Security and Cryptography team. I’m currently involved in projects related to post-quantum cryptography, such as the Open Quantum Safe project. I’m also leading the development of the U-Prove technology. I’m mostly interested in identity and access management, privacy-enhancing technologies, smart cloud encryption (e.g., searchable and homomorphic encryption), and the intersection of AI and security.

Prior to joining Microsoft in 2008, I was the Chief Security Engineer at Credentica, a crypto developer at Silanis Technology working on digital signature systems, and a security engineer at Zero-Knowledge Systems working on TOR-like systems.

Yolan Romailler Applied Cryptographer, Protocol Labs

Yolan is an applied cryptographer at Protocol Labs delving into (and mostly dwelling on) cryptography, secure coding, and other fun things. He has previously spoken at Black Hat USA, BSidesLV, Cryptovillage, NorthSec, GopherConEU, and DEF CON on topics including automation in cryptography, public keys vulnerabilities, elliptic curves, post-quantum cryptography, functional encryption, open source security, distributed randomness, and more! He introduced the first practical fault attack against the EdDSA signature scheme and orchestrated the full disclosure with the code of the CurveBall vulnerability. Nowadays he's working on the distributed randomness project, drand, studying pairing-based cryptography, distributed key generation, and threshold systems. His most recent work was focused around Timelock Encryption.
