Ivan Damg%C3%A5rd

Ivan Bjerre Damgård (born 1956) is a Danish cryptographer and currently a professor at the Department of Computer Science, Aarhus University, Denmark.

In 1983, he obtained a master's degree in mathematics (with minors in music and computer science) at Aarhus University. He began his PhD studies in 1985 at the same university, and was for a period a guest researcher at CWI in Amsterdam in 1987.[1] He earned his PhD degree in May, 1988, with the thesis Ubetinget beskyttelse i kryptografiske protokoller (Unconditional protection in cryptographic protocols) and has been employed at Aarhus University ever since. Damgård was made full professor in 2005.[2]

He is known among other things for the Merkle-Damgård construction used in most modern cryptographic hash functions such as SHA-1 and MD5. He discovered the structure independently of Ralph Merkle and published it in 1989.[3]

Ivan Damgård is also one of the founders of the Cryptomathic company. In 2010, he was selected as IACR Fellow.[4]
