Ludovic Perret

Co-founder

Ludovic is co-chair for CSA’s Quantum-Safe Security working group, which was formed to address key generation and transmission methods and help the industry understand quantum‐safe methods for protecting their networks and their data.

Ludovic is the co-founder and CPO at CryptoNext Security, a spin-off from INRIA Paris and Sorbonne University specialized in post-quantum cryptography. Before founding CryptoNext Security, he was an Associate Professor at Sorbonne University. Ludovic has expertise in the design, analysis and deployment of post-quantum cryptography and has published more than 60 scientific articles in these topics. In 2018, he was awarded the Atos-Joseph Fourier First Prize in the area of Quantum Technologies for his contributions to post-quantum cryptography.

Ludovic is also deeply committed to the standardization of post-quantum cryptography. He is a co-author of the GeMSS digital signature scheme selected to the on-going third round of the NIST post-quantum standardization process (GeMSS), co-chair of the CSA QSS WG, and an active member of the ATARC Quantum Working Group and the quantum-safe cryptography specification group for ETSI.
