Applied Security and Information Assurance Group

Forschungsziele

The Applied Security and Information Assurance Group - APSIA - is headed by Prof. Dr. Peter Y. A. Ryan, Professor of Applied Security. The group is part of SnT and is associated with LACS of the Computer Science and Communications Research Unit - CSC.

The APSIA Group is concerned with the design and analysis of secure systems:

  •  Cryptographic Protocols (classical and quantum)
  •  Cryptographic Algorithms and Primitives
  •  Information Flow
  •  Verifiable Voting Schemes
  •  Socio-Technical Analysis of Security

EquiVox - Secure, Quantum-Safe, Practical Voting Technologies

Zeitrahmen: 1. April 2020 - 31. März 2023
Finanzierung: FNR - CORE
Teilnehmer: RYAN, Peter Y A (Projektleiter), ROENNE, Peter (Forscher), FOTIADIS, Georgios (Research Associate), MUELLER, Johannes (Research Associate)

Beschreibung:

Digital information and communication technologies, entrenched in the fabric of modern society, enrich and facilitate our lives. Used carefully, the very same tools can also serve to enrich and protect core mechanisms, such as elections, that are fundamental to the functioning of democratic societies. In effect, elections form the foundations …

Q-CoDe - Quantum Communication with Deniability

Zeitrahmen: 1. Juli 2018 - 30. Juni 2021
Finanzierung: FNR - CORE
Teilnehmer: RYAN, Peter Y A (Projektleiter), VAN WIER, Jeroen (Doktorand), ATASHPENDAR, Arash (PhD student), OSTREV, Dimiter (Research Associate), Roenne, Peter Browne (Research Associate)

Beschreibung:

The goal of this project is to conduct a thorough formal analysis of the promising, but poorly understood field of deniable quantum communication. It will entail a systematic analysis and classification of the quantum primitives that are relevant for deniability, and further give precise definitions of deniability and related concepts …

Teilnehmer: RYAN, Peter Y A (Projektleiter), MAUW, Sjouke (Collaborator), PANG, Jun (Collaborator)

Beschreibung:

This project will investigate the security of voting systems and increase our assurance in state-of-the-art voting systems. We have
identified three specific areas which are critical in progressing towards adoption of modern voting systems to the benefit of society.

User confidence: Most users are not interested in the cryptographic details, …
