Quarterly Activites
October - December 2017
  • Confirmed visitation to UTAR Sg. Long and Kampar (25 Feb - 2 Mac 2018). The visitation is also approved by IPSR. Prof. Georg will give 2 talks in Sg. Long and 2 talks in Kampar. There will be discussion sessions with the CCS and CISST members during his visit.
July - September 2017
  • Postgraduate Supervision : Dr. Illies advises Chang Boon Chiao in the Mathematical aspect of Number Theoretic Transfor (NTT) and secure protection using Montgomery Ladder. This is helpful for the FPGA based implementation. Skype meeting was conducted between the student, co-supervisor and Dr. Illies.
  • Visitation to UTAR :Dr. Illies is planning to visit UTAR in February 2018 and gives several talks regarding Mathematics and Cryptography
April - June 2017
  • Postgraduate Supervision. Dr. Illies advises Chang Boon Chiao in the Mathematical aspect of Number Theoretic Transfor (NTT) and secure protection using Montgomery Ladder.
  • Skype meeting was conducted between the student, co-supervisor and Dr. Illies.
January - March 2017
  • Dr. Illies advises Chang Boon Chiao in the Mathematical aspect of Number Theoretic Transfor (NTT), which helps in implementing a large integer multiplier in GPU platform.
October - December 2016
  • Postgraduate Supervision. Dr. Illies advises Chang Boon Chiao in the Mathematical aspect of RSA and ECC Cryptographic Alogrithms. We have published one conference paper with the help of Dr. Illies. We acknowledged his contribution in this conference paper.
