Dr Tommaso Gagliardoni

Cryptography and Quantum Security Researcher

I am a mathematician and computer security scientist, with a strong interest in cryptography and anonymity, and in quantum computing and quantum cryptography in particular. I am also a privacy hacktivist and public speaker, with connections to the world of cybersecurity and experience in network and system administration. I performed cryptographic code audits for clients such as Binance, ZenGo, Swiss Post. I got my Master Degree in mathematics at the Universita degli Studi di Perugia, Italy, and a Ph.D. in cryptography at the Technische Universitaet Darmstadt, Germany, with a dissertation about the quantum security of cryptographic primitives, in the research team of Prof. Marc Fischlin. I have been a postdoctoral researcher at IBM Zurich Research Labs, working in the Security and Privacy team with Dr. Jan Camenisch. I’m currently leading the innovation efforts in the cryptography and quantum security area at Swiss-American cybersecurity company Kudelski Security.

As part of my profession and character, I am used to deal with confidential information and privileged relationships with academic, industrial, and government/intelligence partners. I value mutual trust. You will not find much activity from me on social media, because I am very discreet in my private and professional life.

Specialties: Cryptography, Quantum Security, Quantum Computing, Privacy, Anonymity, Security Management, Network and System Administration.
