CRYPTASC aims at the design of an integrated practical toolbox of cryptographic and security primitives based on the promising results obtained over the last decade in the area of quantum information, in particular in quantum cryptography. The project is anticipated to provide a strong impulse to the development and valorisation of a potentially revolutionary ICT solutions to secure networks, by joining the efforts of the academic teams of the Brussels region, expert in cryptography, computer science, and quantum technologies, which will closely collaborate with a founded spin-off company.
CRYPTASC Phase I : September 1, 2007 – August 31, 2010.
CRYPTASC Phase II : September 1, 2010 – August 31, 2013.
CRYPTASC Phase II aims at the design of a high-speed cryptographic key distribution system based on a fast quantum random number generator, of a software toolbox for monitoring the quality of generated random series and of a set of cryptographic primitives and protocols that exploit the local high-rate supply of random bits.
CRYPTASC Phase II is funded by the Brussels Institute for Research and Innovation :
