Applied Cryptography Unit

The Applied Cryptography Unit investigates the design and analysis of modern cryptographic primitives and schemes used to protect the confidentiality and integrity of data – at rest, being communicated or computed upon – both in the classical and the quantum settings. Areas of interest include the algebraic cryptanalysis of symmetric and asymmetric key algorithms; design and analysis of primitives for privacy-preserving cryptographic mechanisms; and the design and analysis of quantum-safe cryptographic constructions.
