RESEARCH PUBLICATIONS

Title 1.Web of Trust Based Relationship Establishment in Online Social Networks Authorsors Dr.Zahid Anwar & Umara Noor & Yasir Mehmood & Waseem Aslam
Description We use OpenPGP digital certificates for authention of user accounts to avoid the fake friend request and accounts clone on social Networks
Title 2. On Fast Implementation of Eta-T pairing On FPGAs (Submitted)
Authors Waseem Aslam & Dr.Nazar Abbas Saqib
Description In this paper we computed pairing (key sharing protocol) parallel as well as we also prove the impact on calculation time by increasing number of coefficients processed per cycle by the multiplier

Master’s Thesis

Title: Key sharing protocol by using Elliptic Curve Cryptography on FPGAs
Advisor: Dr.Nazar Abbas Saqib
Description: We used parallel Karatsuba multiplier and reduction algorithm to optimize Eta-T pairing algorithm and we also proved at which specific value of D, calculation time starts increasing. In the end we compared our implementation results with previous research on Virtex-II

Publications:
1:  WOTFace: Web of Trust Based Relationship Establishment in Online Social Networks
2: Thesis Work(Elliptic Curve Cryptography)
My MS thesis  is “On Fast Implementation of Eta-T pairing Algorithm on FPGA”  I choose Elliptic Curve Cryptography as my research topic because it gives more security as compared to symmetric key ciphers like (DES, AES) and the discrete logarithmic problem is very difficult on Elliptic Curves. I had implemented Eta T pairing algorithm (a key sharing protocol between three users by using Elliptic curves and bilinearity properties) on FPGA and optimize the algorithm to speed up the key sharing protocol and the whole system. I also love to analyze the LFSR based systems and want to know how input maps to output and how the system is vulnerable to some attacks and how we go back to the initial input.
