Cryptography Research Centre


In our connected digital world, secure and reliable cryptography is the foundation of digital information security and data integrity. We address the world’s most pressing cryptographic questions. Our work covers post-quantum cryptography, lightweight cryptography, cloud encryption schemes, secure protocols, quantum cryptographic technologies and cryptanalysis.


Today, our research focuses on: 


  • Cryptography for the era of quantum computers
  • Cryptography for the Internet of Things and Cyber Physical Systems
  • Cryptography for the Cloud
  • Cryptographic protocols
  • Cryptography engineering
  • Cryptanalysis


Position: Post Quantum Cryptography Researcher 


Job Description


  • Design and implement quantum-safe PKE/KEM and digital signature schemes
  • Conduct research and development in one of the following:
    • lattice-based cryptography
    • code-based cryptography
    • hash-based cryptography
    • isogeny-based cryptography
  • Perform security assessments of crypto-primitives and cryptosystems at the theoretical and implementation level
  • Research on zero knowledge proofs using codes and lattices


Skills required for the job


  • Extensive experience developing in C, C++, Rust or Go.
  • Deep understanding of cryptographic algorithms and protocols.
