Lee Kong Chian Faculty of Engineering and Science Dean Prof Ir Dr Goi Bok Min was elected as one of the Academy of Science Malaysia (ASM) Fellows 2018 for his contributions in IT & Computer Sciences Discipline at Sunway Putra Hotel, Kuala Lumpur on 11 November 2018.
Prof Goi has contributed his expertise through the engagement as a consultant and a panel of expert with various organisations such as the Panel Expert for the Development of a National Cryptology Policy, Cyber Security Malaysia and Malaysian Society for Cryptology Research (MSCR) and Technical Committee member of Information Security and Smartcard in SIRIM (TC5). He was an Editorial Board member for various international journals and often invited as a reviewer for Journal of Information Processing and Systems (JIPS), Journal of Systems and Software, Elsevier, International Journal of Information Security, Springer and many more.
Prof Goi is also an expert in the area of cryptology, which is the underpinning technique to provide digital security services. Since 2001, he has designed and implemented secure efficient cryptographic algorithms and cryptanalyzed several published cryptographic schemes. He managed to merge and integrate various techniques to propose some new variant of security techniques such as bio-encryption and key binding (biometrics and cryptography) as well as video and image crypto watermarking and multi-modal authentication schemes. He has also broken several published cryptographic security schemes, especially the PAKE, BSW schemes and watermarking schemes. He also uses his engineering knowledge and skills on embedded systems design and telecommunication to examine security aspects, design and implementation of security algorithms, smart expert and communication networking systems.
Prof Goi was awarded the 2014 Top Research Scientists Malaysia (TRSM) Award and 2013 UTAR Research Excellence Award. Aside from that, Prof Goi collaborates with local institutes for his research work such as MIMOS, Multimedia University and international research institutes from Korea, China, Japan, USA, Singapore and New Zealand. His research outcomes have been published and presented in high-impact journals and conferences. He has published more than 140 technical papers, which includes 80 journal papers, cited in Scopus-700 and h-index of 20.
