The mission of the Cryptography and Privacy Engineering Group (ENCRYPTO) is to demonstrate that privacy can be efficiently protected in real-world applications. For this, we bring theory into practice by using methods from applied cryptography and algorithm engineering for developing protocols, tools, and software prototypes to efficiently protect sensitive data in various application scenarios.
