Professor Eugene A. Krouk has graduated from Leningrad Institute of Aviation Instrumentation in 1973, by "Automated control systems" specialty. In 1978 he receive Ph.D. degree, and in 1999 Doctor of Science degree. In 1990 he receive the academic status of Associate Professor, and in 2004 Professor. Krouk E.A. participated in many research and development works, performed all kinds of educational load. From 1974 till now he works in Saint-Petersburg State University of Aerospace Instrumentation. In 2001 the Systems Security Department was developed with active participation of Krouk E.A., and he became the head of this Department from the moment of its creation. In 2005 Krouk E.A. was elected as Dean of the Information Systems and Data Protection Faculty. From 2004 he is also the director of the Computer Security Institute. From 2007 he is ia Director of ICT Academy. In 2008 Krouk E.A. obtained the title Honoured Scientist of Russian Federation.
Professor Krouk E.A. is an outstanding scientist in the field of theory and designing of infocommunication systems and technologies. His works in coding theory, cryptography, data communication theory is known both in Russia and abroad. He is an author of more than 120 printed works. During the last 6 years he published 5 books, including «Error Correcting Coding and Security for Data Networks. Analysis of the Supperchannel Concept»,(published in 2005 and 2010 in John Wiley & Sons, Ltd., Great Britain), «Combinatorial decoding of linear block codes » (Russia, 2007) and Modulation and Coding Techniques in Wireless Communications ( John Wiley and Sons, January 2011), 5 textbooks, receive more than 20 international patents. The number of works by Krouk E.A. has high citation index, and affects the development of correspondent research fields.
In the works by Krouk E.A. and his disciples the theory of combinatorial decoding of linear block codes is developed. The new methods of combinatorial decoding in discrete and continuous communication channels are developed, estimations of decoding complexity are obtained, the best known decoding algorithms for the number of optimal and sub-optimal codes are suggested. Usage of these results allowed suggesting of new solutions in mobile communication systems development. Krouk E.A. proposed the method of using the codes in packet-switching networks, oriented not on increasing the transmission reliability, but on decreasing the average delay of the messages in the network. This method allowed to significantly increase the quality of wireless video transmission. The principles of construction the public-key systems based on error-correcting codes were developed by Krouk E.A. The class of public-key cryptosystems and the digital signature scheme is proposed, basing on the results from coding theory. Proposed systems are competitive to the most popular public-key cryptosystems.
For the works in the area of new information and network technologies development and their application in training the specialists of the higher qualification Krouk E.A. was awarded by the premium of Government of Saint-Petersburg "For the outstanding achievements in the area of higher education". Starting from 1980, E.A. Krouk was the supervisor of research and development works. During the last 5 years he permanently performs research and development works in cooperation with domestic and foreign companies. In particular, he is the manager of large contracts with such leaders in the area of infocommunication techniques as Intel, Siemens, and Samsung. During the period of 2002 2006 he took part in the creation and was the director of the Joint Laboratory of SUAI and Samsung company. From 2003 he is the scientific supervisor of SUAI-Intel laboratory. Basing on these laboratories, in 2004 Professor Krouk E.A. had developed and headed the Computer Security Institute.
Professor Krouk E.A. has broad scientific contacts with the number of foreign universities and scientific centers. He worked as invited professor in German, Netherlands, Sweden universities. He took part in performing the number of international scientific projects. Krouk E.A. is the member of editorial board of the "Information and control systems" journal. In 2007 E.A. Krouk was elected as President of Russian section of international society of instrumentation and automated systems (ISA). E.A. Krouk is the Corresponding Member of International academy of higher school sciences. Federation of Cosmonautics awarded Professor E.A. Krouk with medals of K.E. Tsiolkovsky and S.P. Korolev.
