Bio

Prof. M. Sethumadhavan (born in 1966) is the Head of TIFAC-Centre of Relevance and Excellence in Cyber Security, an R&D centre at Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham Coimbatore campus since its inception in the year 2005. He leads the R&D that focuses on the areas of cyber security such as Cryptology, Post Quantum Cryptography, Steganalysis, Secure Coding, Computer Network Security, Digital Forensics etc. A central focus of his work has been to create innovative educational and research programs and develop world-class expertise in Cyber Security as the underlying vision.

TIFAC-CORE in Cyber Security at Amrita is a collaborative alliance of academic and industrial partners. The TIFAC-CORE in Cyber Security gives significant thrust to the frontier areas of Cyber Security, including technology, practice, management, and policy issues.

Prof. Sethumadhavan is the Principal Investigator of several Cyber Security Research projects funded by organizations such as Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO), National Technical Research Organization (NTRO), Department of Science & Technology, Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, Govt. of India, and recently from National Security Council Secretariat, Govt. of India. Total amount of the research grant received is Rupees Ten Crores.

Some of his latest research papers appeared in journals like IET Information Security, Discrete Applied Mathematics and Journal of Mathematical Cryptology. He has 40 research publications to his credit, guided six Ph.D. students and is currently guiding seven students.
