The visit was specially meant to do some research work in collaboration with Associate Professor Dr. El Mostafa Kalmoun from SSE faculty on the application of a newly developed sequence, called the wing sequence,in developing a new variant of a public-key encryption scheme. The research was supported by the Fundamental Research Grant Scheme (Unravel Hidden Pattern of Flip-Flops Wings: Butterfly Sequence for Key Generation Algorithms - FRGS SO Code14855). Some initial ideas for encrypting and decrypting data and planning to accomplish this task were discussed.   

On October 28, Prof. Ibrahim had a meeting with Prof. Fouad Chaatit, interim Dean of SSE, to explore common research interests and potential collaborative projects.
