The Cryptography and Information Security Group conduct research into cryptography, the underlying hard problems on which it is based and the hardware and software needed to implement secure systems.
The group has particular interest in techniques for proving security of cryptographic systems, the efficient implementation of such systems on small computing devices and the verification that such implementations do what they say they do.
The Bristol Cryptography group is unique in its combination of theoretical and practical work. It is a leading player on the world stage of cryptographic research.
We also have an interest in security auditing and computer forensics. The group is responsible for the teaching of all Information Security units across the University.
