    Project Description

    Online services for collaborative communication and software distribution are commonplace today, but their
    use is hampered by data privacy breaches and intellectual property violations via software reverse
    engineering. Recent theoretical breakthroughs in cryptography promise to provide new powerful tools for
    solving these problems, but these tools are not yet suitable for practical use, due to their low efficiency and a
    lack of solid security foundations. This project will apply algebraic and probabilistic techniques to improve
    efficiency of existing tools, and the understanding of their security. Outcomes will include new insights in
    cryptographic theory, and new practical tools for cyber security.
