Our Research Group

This site represents PQC integration projects initiated by the research groups Applied Cyber-Security and User Centered Security of Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences, funded by ATHENE National Research Center for Applied Cybersecurity.

Our project team deals with the challenges of PQC migration, and searches for answers to the open questions in this field. We build upon our findings and analysis towards finding suitable solutions for achieving said migration and establishing crypto-agility in IT-systems. Our goal is to develop such solutions through design, strategies, frameworks and interfaces.

On the one hand we conduct research on the newest findings regarding cryptographic measures and their development state. This research is managed and updated continuously through a community-based website that will further gather the newest developments regarding PQC research. On the other hand, we Contribute to cutting edge post quantum cryptography technologies and it’s applications, as we transform our theoretical and scientific findings into practical solutions, such as our recently developed cryptographic API (eUCRITE). Further, we started the development of an automated tool for the detection of cryptographic components in IT-systems, that could simplify the migration in networks and IT-infrastructures through analyzing and identifying the existing cryptographic measures.
