At PACY we research and develop privacy-enhancing cryptographic technologies for the protection of users, data, and communications. We work on foundational aspects such as modelling and security analysis, as well as predominantly on the design, development, and practical deployment. 

Our research areas include protocols for secure processing of encrypted and distributed data, functional/attribute-based encryption and  signature schemes, privacy-preserving authentication and key management protocols, protocols for private messaging, privacy-enhancing cryptography for decentralised multi-party applications in the context of web/cloud, social media, IoT, and blockchain.

On these pages you will find information about our ongoing and completed research projects. We often work with national and international partners from academia, industry and government.
