Areas of expertise

Christian Damsgaard Jensen addresses the development of models, policies and mechanisms to support secure collaboration in potentially large-scale open distributed systems, such as pervasive computing, ambient intelligence, sensor networks and the Internet. He focus, in particular, on the development of new security abstractions and mechanisms to address security in such highly dynamic environments. He has published more than 60 peer-reviewed papers in international journals, conferences and workshops.


He is an internationally recognised expert in the area of Trust Management, where the human notions of trust and reputation are applied in the context of computer and network security. He has served as both General- and Program Co-chair for the International Conference on Trust Management.
