People

Director

  • Alon Rosen (IDC) Alon's primary field of research is cryptography, with a focus on the theory and application of cryptographic protocols. He is also interested in the construction of efficient cryptographic schemes with provable security guarantees.

Associate Directors

  • Elette Boyle (IDC) Elette is interested in problems that bring mathematical elegance to the realm of the applicable. Her research centers in cryptography, including oblivious computation, multi-party protocols, and secure computations on "big data."
  • Tal Moran (IDC) Tal's research focuses on employing ideas and techniques from theoretical cryptography to design secure systems in the "real world". He’s also interested the foundations of cryptography and the theory of cryptography in general.

Members

  • Adi Akavia (Tel-Aviv-Yafo Academic College) Adi is interested in cryptography, complexity, and algorithms, with focus on securing cryptosystems against theoretical and practical attacks, and on devising sub-linear algorithms for signal processing tasks.
  • Andrej Bogdanov (CUHK) Andrej is interested in computational complexity, cryptography, and anything that involves randomness and computation. Some of his recent work investigates the theoretical foundations of parallel cryptography.
  • Gil Segev (HUJI) Gil's research focuses on cryptography and its interplay with various other areas in the foundations of computer science.
  • Amnon Ta-Shma (TAU) Amnon is interested in computational complexity in general and quantum, randomized and derandomized computation in particular. Amnon is also interested in the construction of explicit structures with "random-like" properties such as error correcting codes, extractors, condensers and pseudo-random generators.

Partners

  • Stefan Lucks (Weimar) Stefan Lucks designs and analyses cryptographic primitives (e.g., hash functions and block ciphers) and their integration secure complex cryptosystems (e.g., for authenticated encryption). He also deals with the practice-oriented development of formal cryptographic security notions.
  • Alexander May (RUB) Alexander's main research area is cryptanalysis with a focus on algorithmic number theory, lattices, codes and polynomial equations. He is interested in instantiating cryptographic systems with a well-defined theoretical and practical security level.
