Gert Læssøe Mikkelsen

I have a PhD in cryptography from the Department of Computer Science at Aarhus University.

During my studies, I was engaged in theoretical cryptography, including multiparty computation, public key cryptography and protocols for protecting digital identities. 

My professional interests include cryptographic protocol theory and how to turn all the theoretical ideas within cryptography into practical solutions that make a difference in society where Internet security plays an increasingly important role. 

I am currently involved in security projects in the fields of digital identity management and IoT (Internet of Things), for example in relation to security analyses.
