Biography of Henrich C. Pöhls

Mr. Henrich C. Pöhls received his graduate diploma in computer science (Dipl. Inf.) from the University of Hamburg and additionally holds an M.Sc. in Information Security from Royal Holloway University of London. Since 2004 he is a Research Assistant to Prof. Joachim Posegga, working first at University of Hamburg and, since 2008, at the University of Passau.
Under the supervision of Prof. Joachim Posegga, he is currently working on his Ph.D. degree researching the practical application and legal implications of malleable signatures, a cryptographically advanced digital signature scheme. His work, among other teaching activities, included a lecture course on PKI and network security. He also has experience in third-party funded research projects.
Recently, he lead the security work package of the French-German research project RESCUE IT, funded by the BMBF and the ANR, focusing on technical methods to support the integrity and authenticity protection of data in food supply chains. Currently, he leads the Systems & Information Security and Trust work package of RERUM. In RERUM Mr. Pöhls is looking forward to apply and enhance malleable signatures, thus enabling smart city applications to verify the authenticity of signed sensor data even if for privacy personally identifying information has been removed on behalf of the citizen. Overall, RERUM will develop, evaluate, and trial an architectural framework for dependable, reliable, and secure networks of heterogeneous smart objects supporting innovative Smart City applications, based on the concept of security and privacy "by design".
