Nouri Alnahawi

I am an external PhD candidate advised by Juliane Krämer and Alexander Wiesmaier (Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences / Hochschule Darmstadt).

My research interest is post-quantum cryptography integration and migration in security protocols and infrastructures with focus on the design of quantum-resistant key exchange protocols and lattice-based cryptography. I'm also interested in general cryptographic migration management and crypto-agility.
