Gregory G. Rose

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Gregory G. "Greg" Rose (born July 15, 1955, in Sydney, Australia) was a senior vice president of technology for Qualcomm.[1][2]

Rose is noted for designing the SOBER family of stream ciphers for wireless telephony.[3] Together with Philip Hawkes, he also designed Turing, a cipher system based on the SOBER-t32.[4] It was developed to address encryption issues, particularly the limitations to processing power, program space, and memory present in software encryption algorithms.[5]
