Joan Daemen (* 1965 ) is a Belgian cryptologist who was involved in the development of important cryptographic procedures. Together with Vincent Rijmen he developed the block cipher Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), together with Guido Bertoni, Michaël Peeters and Gilles Van Assche the cryptological hash function SHA-3 . Among other things, he also developed 3-Way .

Daemen graduated from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in 1988 . There he began his doctorate as a member of the research group COSIC (Computer Security and Industrial Cryptography) and completed it in 1995. After leaving university, he worked for Janssen Pharmaceutica , BACOB , Banksys, Proton World and STMicroelectronics .

He regularly published work in the field of cryptography. He often worked together with his former COSIC colleague Vincent Rijmen. The collaboration led to the publication of the block cipher Square , the predecessor of Rijndael (AES) in 1997 .
