Collaborative Research Center CROSSING

Our goal is to provide cryptography-based security solutions enabling trust in new and next generation computing environments. The solutions will meet the efficiency and security requirements of the new environments and will have sound implementations. They will be easy to use for developers, administrators, and end users of IT, even if they are not cryptography experts. In CROSSING researchers from complementary areas such as cryptography, quantum physics, system and software engineering will achieve this goal in a collaborative effort.
