Philippe Camacho, MSc

Philippe Camacho, MSc is Ph.D. Student in Cryptology at the University of Chile.
Philippe’s principal area of interest is the study of cryptographic protocols and more specifically data structures with cryptographic properties. In addition to his academic side he is also a practitioner of agile methodologies and an entrepreneur. He thinks there is a lot in common between research and entrepreneurship: in both cases you need not only to solve a problem but to find new interesting problems! You also need to collaborate and develop new tools to let the good ideas emerge and then make these ideas reality.
His goal is to build bridges between academic research and entrepreneurship, especially developing tools and methods to improve knowledge discovery and transfer.
Philippe’s papers include Fair Exchange of Short Signatures without Trusted Third Party, Short Transitive Signatures for Directed Trees, Optimal Data Authentication from Directed Transitive Signatures, On the Impossibility of Batch Update for Cryptographic Accumulators, Strong Accumulators from Collision-Resistant Hashing, Evaluation of Chess Position by Modular Neural Network Generated by Genetic Algorithm, and Documentación Electrónica e Interoperabilidad de la Información.
Philippe earned his Master’s degree in Cryptology and Computer Security at the Université Bordeaux I, France in 2004. He earned his Master’s degree in Computer Science at Université Paul Sabatier (Toulouse III), France in 2003. He earned his Licentiate degree in Mathematics at Université Paul Sabatier (Toulouse III), France in 2001.
