Centre for Research on Cryptography and Security enables both graduate and pre-graduate students to gain practical experience with current security and crypto solutions and technologies. The main areas of interest are user and data authentication, secure usage of smartcards, security for Internet of Things, usable security. More specific areas of interest are selected with respect to current developments and in accordance with senior members' current research focus – for an overview of current research projects/areas see this link. Our goal is to create an environment that allows students to get hands-on experience with the available technical solutions and explore, e.g., various types of attacks in laboratory courses or when working on their thesis. The laboratory is open to students who work on projects within the FI industrial partnership framework or projects running with relevant governmental bodies.
