Tjerand Silde

Hi! I am an Associate Professor in Cryptology at the Department of Information Security and Communication Technology at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim, where I am a permanent member of the NTNU Applied Cryptology Lab.

I am also a Security and Cryptography Expert at the cybersecurity company Pone Biometrics.

My main foci of research are lattice-based cryptography and zero-knowledge protocols. My interests also span the areas of post-quantum cryptography, secure multiparty computation, homomorphic encryption, electronic voting and anonymous communication.

I am a member of the International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR).


I support the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the Tor Project and the Signal Foundation.
