Raoul earned a PhD on confidential computing in 2014 when the topic was still called "Protected Module Architectures". He has made significant contributions to the field. His ideas on hardware- and hypervisor-based security architectures have helped shape commercially available confidential computing platforms. Other major contributions were in the field of state continuity, formal verification and side-channel attacks and defenses. He authored the first Foreshadow attack PoC against Intel SGX. The attack received world-wide media coverage. Currently, he is a senior software engineer at Fortanix where he helps make EDP to be the most secure and easiest to use enclave development platform for various confidential computing platforms.
