Description

Leader of the group Cryptology: Ronald Cramer.

Our research group is concerned with digital security, an area of increasingly pressing concern for industry, government and society at large. We investigate how cryptologic methods can contribute to solving security issues, for example through encryption, digital signatures and secure computation. Furthermore, we seek to establish the reliability of current cryptologic methods, how they can be improved, and what better alternatives there might be.
Quantum safety, meaning security in a possible future age of quantum computing, is a particular focus of our research.

TNO, CWI and TU Delft receive 1.8 million for research in quantum security of public key infrastructures

A consortium including TNO, CWI and TU Delft received a 1.8 million grant from NWO to conduct research in the quantum security of public key infrastructures (PKI), which form the basis for secure digital connections and the protection of digital information. Research proposal HAPKIDO was submitted in response to a call from the Dutch National Science Agenda (NWA).
