Professor Jintai Ding is a Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cincinnati, and a world expert at post-quantum cryptography. He holds multiple patents for his cryptographic algorithms, a PhD from Yale and has guest lectured extensively throughout the world at universities such as the University of Oxford, University of Tokyo and Technical University of Darmstadt. He is the inventor of Rainbow signature scheme and the LWE-based key exchange scheme, and a co-inventor of the Ding-Iohara algebra. He is the Co-chairman of the ABCmint foundation at Zug. The ABCmint foundation is devoted to building quantumproof blockchain technology that can resist quantum computer attacks. The foundation will also support the research in post-quantum cryptography and quantum computing.
Professor Jintai Ding is co-chairman of the ABCMint Foundation and a professor of Mathematics at the University of Cincinnati.
He received B.A. from Xian Jiaotong University in 1988, M.A. from the University of Science and Technology of China in 1990 and Ph.D from Yale in 1995. He was a lecturer at the RIMS of Kyoto University 1995-1998. He has been at the University of Cincinnati since 1998. In 2006-2007, he was a visiting professor and Alexander Von Humboldt Fellow at TU Darmstadt. He received the ZhongJiaQing Prize from the Chinese Mathematical Society in 1990.
His research was originally in quantum affine algebras, where he was credited for the invention of the Ding-Iohara-Miki algebra. His current interest is in post-quantum cryptography.
He was co-chair of the 2nd international workshop on post-quantum cryptography and is the co-chair for the 10th international workshop on post-quantum cryptography. He and his colleagues developed the Rainbow signature, the GUI HFEV- signature, the Simple Matrix encryption and the LWE-based post-quantum key exchange schemes. In the last 5 years, he has been developing quantum resistant blockchain technology.
