Cryptography Section

The cryptography section both develops and assesses new and existing cryptographic primitives, protocols, and implementations.

Cryptanalytic assessment focuses on, but is not limited to, symmetric-key cryptography and takes into account both algebraic, statistical, and side channel attacks.  The goal is to acquire an in-depth understanding of the level of protection provided by cryptographic algorithms and simultaneously develop a roadmap for improved protection. New ideas are explored resulting in new algorithms and implementations to realize the roadmap.

We also construct provably secure yet efficient cryptographic protocols for complex tasks like secure e-voting, privacy-preserving data mining, and privacy-preserving blockchain applications. We work on the underlying theory that allows us to both construct better tools and understand principal limitations and impossibility results of such tools.
