RESEARCH PROFILE

APPLIED CRYPTOGRAPHY, ERROR-CORRECTING CODING, COMPUTER SECURITY
The most essential application of contemporary cryptography is the protection of data against unauthorized access and transmission errors. This task is particularly important for all activities of present computer networks and systems. The aim of the research is to develop methods of the synthesis of electronic documents in a form, which can be equivalent to signed paper documents. The research activities concern the following problems:

  • systems of public key infrastructure and their applications,
  • problems of public key generation by a client-side with limited trust,
  • synthesis of electronic documents fully equivalent to classic paper documents,
  • fast software implementation of cryptographic algorithms, operations in Galois fields, encoding and decoding algorithms,
  • construction of Latin squares of higher orders and applying them for designing quasigroup-based synchronous and self-synchronizing stream ciphers,
  • techniques for distributing confidential keys,
  • digital signature algorithms,
  • identification and entity authentication.
