Collaborative Projects

CryptoExperts is a research group of well-recognized experts in cryptography and is connected to a network of more than 45 technology partners from across the globe.

Ranging from hardware cryptoprocessing to user-privacy, from lightweight encryption to white-box cryptography, here is a selection of our current project projects.

ECRYPT Projects

CryptoExperts is a partner of the coordination & support action ECRYPT-CSA, and of the research network ECRYPT-NET, sponsored by the European Union's H2020 programme.


ecrypt csa

The goal of this CSA is to strengthen European excellence in the area of cryptology and to build on the Network of Excellence ECRYPT and ECRYPT II to achieve a durable integration and structuring of the European cryptography community, involving academia, industry, law enforcement and defense agencies.


Concretely, the project has the following objectives:

  • Joint research agenda and foresight studies on 15 cryptographic hot topics
  • Identification and technology gaps, market and implementation opportunities
  • Contribute to the development of European standards, including for the public sector
  • Dissemination and outreach to broad range of communities and strengthening the link with institutional stakeholders such as the European Commission

During this project (March 2015 - March 2018), CryptoExperts will organize the four following workshops:





ecrypt net

ECRYPT-NET is a research network that intends to develop advanced cryptographic techniques for the Internet of Things and the Cloud and to create efficient and secure implementations of those techniques on a broad range of platforms. The project is funded by a Marie Skłodowska-Curie ITN (Integrated Training Network) grant. The network will educate a group of 15 PhD students who are expected to spend at least six months abroad in a network partner or in one of the 7 associated companies.
