Cyber Security Bachelor

Nijmegen is the first university in the Netherlands to start a bachelor programme in Cyber Security, in sept. 2013. Find out more information (in Dutch) and consider joining!

(Since several years there is already an English-language master programma in cyber security.)


Research topics

My research concentrates on correctness and security properties of software. Other, related topics of interest are: logic, esp. for security, supported by theorem proving; identity and privacy management (see eg. the IRMA project on attribute-based authentication); cyber security and intelligence; societal aspects of computer security; specification and verification; semantics of programming, esp. for Java; smart cards, esp. Java cards; and also theoretical computer science (esp. coalgebras and quantum computing).
