Véronique's PhD thesis "Automatic Verification of Cryptographic Protocols" was the 2003 winner of the Gilles Kahn Prize of the Société informatique de France for the best French dissertation in computer science. 

Cortier also won a second dissertation prize, from Le Monde. In 2015, she was the second woman to win the INRIA and French Academy of Sciences Young Researcher Award for her work on Belenios, a secure electronic voting system (https://www.belenios.org).
