I study the difficulty of successfully deploying cryptography and security technologies due to compatibility requirements, economic incentives, and human factors. I'm particularly interested in secure communication tools, cryptocurrencies, password and web authentication, and HTTPS and PKI on the web. My past research has spanned side-channel cryptanalysis, protocol verification, software obfuscation, and privacy in social networks.
