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.

Three articles from the Netherlands published in ERCIM News 106 on Cybersecurity

In July 2016, ERCIM News 106 was published: ercim-news.ercim.eu/en106. This issue featured a special theme on Cybersecurity, in which three articles from the Netherlands were published and one from Belgium. Another article from the Netherlands, on the 100th birthday of former CWI (MC) director and informatics pioneer Aad van Wijngaarden, was published in the Research & Society section.
