Assoc Prof Khoo Khoong Ming

Adjunct Associate Professor

Assoc Prof Khoo Khoong Ming

I did my PhD at the University of Waterloo from 2000-2003, Center for Applied Cryptographic Research (CACR) under the supervision of Prof. Guang Gong and Prof. Douglas Stinson.

Since then, I have been working at DSO National Laboratories in Singapore. Currently, I am a principal member of technical staff at DSO National Laboratories and an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences at NTU.
Research Interests
My interest is on applications of Mathematics to Cryptography. My current focus is on Symmetric Cryptography, specifically: Cryptographic Boolean Functions, Stream Ciphers and Block Ciphers.
Current Projects
  • Physical Analysis & Cryptographic Engineering (PACE)
  • Project HYPERVENOM - Design and Analysis of Authenticated Encryption Ciphers
  • Project HYPERVENOM - Homomorphic Encryption and Blom-Like Key Pre-Distribution Scheme
