Dr. Sandeep S. Kumar



Working as a Senior Scientist at Philips Research Europe - Eindhoven, Netherlands - with expert domain knowledge of applied security. Presently I work in the Lighting Control Systems (LCS) group where my research focus is on secure architectures for networked lighting control systems. I am closely involved with the Lighting business to design secure architectures of their systems and protecting new ideas with patents. I also participate in the security standardization activities of the Internet of Things at the IETF 6LoWPAN/CoAP group.

I started at Philips Research in the Information and System Security (ISS) Group where my research focus was on Physcially Unclonable Functions (PUF) for Intellectual Property (IP) protection and anti-counterfeiting of electronic devices. Technologies were developed for FPGAs to bind the programming code to each individual hardware chip to prevent cloning of the device. These are protected by patents. Also closely assisted the PUF related business initiative Intrinsic-ID within Philips. Further I worked in the area of Digital Identity Management for consumer lifestyle applications. Emphasis was on trust and reputation management technologies which enables trustworthy transaction decisions.

I have worked extensively in the area of applied data security for embedded systems with over 10+ years of professional experience. I received my Ph.D. (Dr.-Ing.) from Ruhr-University of Bochum (HGI, eurobits) Germany, in the area of applied data security in 2006. My main research area was in Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) for constrained devices. I have also worked extensively on other areas of cryptography including their efficient software and hardware implementations. I completed both my Bachelor of Technology (B’ Tech) and Master of Technology (M’ Tech) in Electrical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology - Bombay, India - in 2002.
