Matthew Green, PhD, Assistant Professor, Department of Computer Science, Johns Hopkins University

Matthew Green is an Assistant Professor at the Johns Hopkins Information Security Institute. His research includes techniques for privacy-enhanced information storage, anonymous payment systems, and bilinear map-based cryptography. Dr. Green is one of the creators of the Zerocash protocol, which is used by the ZCash cryptocurrency. He was formerly a partner in Independent Security Evaluators, a custom security evaluation and design consultancy and currently consults independently. From 1999-2003, he served as a senior technical staff member at AT&T Laboratories/Research in Florham Park, NJ.

Dr. Green’s research focus is in the area of applied cryptography. His recent work includes developing privacy-preserving cryptographic protocols for implementing anonymous electronic cash and identification. He has also developed protocols that allow users to access databases without revealing which data they’re accessing. Additionally, he has been working on new automation techniques to assist in the design and deployment of advanced cryptographic protocols.

Dr. Green also works in the area of cryptographic engineering. This work involves understanding the practical aspects of cryptographic systems, implementing cryptographic protocols, and in some cases reverse-engineering deployed systems. He teaches an introductory course on this subject. Additionally, he has designed several cryptographic tools, including Charm, a framework for rapidly prototyping cryptosystems, and a Functional Encryption library that provides implementations of several new Attribute Based Encryption schemes.
