Bart Preneel is a Belgian cryptographer and cryptanalyst. He is a professor at Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, in the COSIC group, president of the International Association for Cryptologic Research, and project manager of ECRYPT.
Simultaneously with Shoji Miyaguchi, he invented the Miyaguchi-Preneel scheme, a robust structure used in hash functions such as Whirlpool. He is one of the authors of the RIPEMD-160 hash function. He was also a co-inventor of the stream cipher MUGI which later on went on to become a Japanese standard, and of the stream cipher Trivium which is a well-received entrant to the eSTREAM project.
