Applied Cryptography Research Group

Large scale quantum computers break currently used public key cryptosystems, integer factorization cryptography, finite field cryptography and elliptic curve cryptography. Before the production of such computers, new public key cryptosystems that are secure against classical and quantum computers must be developed and in use. The post-quantum cryptography aims to develop such cryptographic algorithms. PQC research group, established in 2018 at the Institute of Applied Mathematics, Middle East Technical University does research on the development of secure and efficient PQC algorithms. Research areas of PQC Research Group are hash-based digital signature schemes, code-based cryptography, lattice-based cryptography, multivariate public key cryptography, and isogeny-based cryptography.
