Projects

SageMath - SageMath is a free open-source mathematics software system licensed under the GPL. It builds on top of many existing open-source packages: NumPy, SciPy, matplotlib, Sympy, Maxima, GAP, FLINT, R and many more. Access their combined power through a common, Python-based language or directly via interfaces or wrappers. I actively improve existing S-Box package and Boolean functions by implementing various algorithms to evaluate their cryptographic properties such as nonlinearity, differential uniformity, branch number, linear structures, algebraic degree, etc.
Quak-ID - Quak-ID is a location-based mobile web earthquake detection in Indonesia. The application was designed to instantly calculate the distance of users from the latest earthquake using mobile browsers. Quak-ID uses HTML5 geolocation feature available in most of modern browsers. It has a fallback mechanism using IP-address based location detection in order to support older browsers with no HTML5 native geolocation features.
