Bas Boom received his bachelor engineer degree in Computer Science in 2002 from the Hogeschool van Amsterdam (www.hva.nl), The Netherlands. During this period he did two internships at fox-it. During the first internship he studied PGP (Pretty Good Privacy) and PKCS#11 (Smart card standard) and combined these two protocols in a C++ implementation (proof of concept) which was able to save the private key of PGP on a smartcard. During the second internship several strategies for Anomaly Detection on HTTP traffic were studied and he implemented a prove of concept of several methods for Anomaly Detection in Snort (Intrusion Detection Sofware).
In 2005 he received the Master degree from the Vrije Universiteit (Free University) Amsterdam in Computer Science on a thesis entitled "Fast Object Detection". This thesis was the result of a succesfull internship at Prime Vision, where he did research at methods for fast detection (localisation) of license plates, faces and addresses in images.
He is now working as a PhD student at the University of Twente, in the fields of biometrics. His research topics are face detection, face registration and face recognition in video surveillance environments.
Latest Student Project:
During the B2 Projects, some students have developed a "3D TV" using just a webcam and a normal monitor, which is called Magic Vision Portal and is shown on YoutuÂbe.
