Cell Broadcast not employed in Germany, but could have helped warn people of flooding
Hello! After some months of leaving my personal website untouched, I decided that it’s time to pick it up again, as a lot has happened in the last couple of months. First, I started working for the Radboud University on the 1st of April. So far I started following the “Intro 2 Crypto” course to get some more knowledge about cryptography. I can say after about 2 months it already really helped to understand papers better that have crypto content.
Two weeks ago I decided to accept an offer from the Radboud Universiteit in Nijmegen to promote there. The project is called Encryption for all. Based on the IRMA technology the project has the aim to find a solution to encrypt emails based on Attribute-Based-Encryption. There are 3 positions in the project team. One is the PhD position I’m going to fulfill, which is designing the process including cryptography and key management.
About a month ago I started to learn the Rust programming language. The homepage claims that reasons to use rust are performance, reliability, and productivity. The language is developed by the Mozilla foundation. I can say that some of the more unique concepts, such as ownership and borrowing seem to be well thought of, and it takes some time to get your head around. I already have an idea for a project, but I will not disclose any details yet.
