I'm Nicolas 'Nics' BORDES, a french student doing crypto.
After my baccalauréat, I did a Classe Préparatoire aux Grandes Écoles. And then, I went to the Ensimag - Grenoble Institute of Technology, an Engineering School specialized in computer science and applied mathematics.
For my last year at the Ensimag I have chosen to specialized myself in IT security and cryptology. In fact I was interested in these subject all along my studies. I am currently an active member of an association called Securimag. Among other things, we organize each year GreHack, an international IT security conference.
I am currently doing a PhD on symmetric cryptographic primitives in a laboratory of computer science and applied mathematics in Grenoble, France.
I am not a native english speaker but I feel comfortable enough to write everything you will find here in english.
Nevertheless, if you spot a big mistake or a reoccuring one, feel free to Contact Me to help me improve my english.
