Dongxi Liu joined CSIRO in March 2008. Before that, he was a Researcher in the University of Tokyo from Feb 2004 to March 2008, and a Research Fellow in National University of Singapore from December 2002 to December 2003.

His current research topics include applied cryptography, IoT system security, and data security in cloud computing. Here are some systems or algorithms he is excited about.

  1. EnerID blockchain protocol: (accessible in CSIRO intranet only at moment)

    EnerID blockchain aims to democratize the blockchain technique across every corner of the world; every one with a web browser, regardless of their (computing) power or wealth (stake), is able to create new blocks, recording their daily information or transactions into the tamper-resistant EnerID blockchain. An Australia Provisional Patent has been filed for EnerID blockchain.

  2. CLAE: a lightweight scheme of authenticated encryption with associated data

    CLAE is a Round 1 candidate for NIST Lightweight Cryptography (LWC) Standardization (
    Side-channel attacks like differential power analysis are explicitly prevented in the design of CLAE.

  3. Open IoT-Mashup (under early development)

    IoT devices are proliferating. On open IoT-Mashup platform, people can securely share and interconnect their devices to dynamically create new IoT application scenarios.
