The goal of CROSSING 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 have sound implementations. They will be easy to use for developers, administrators, and end users of IT, even if they are not cryptography experts. CROSSING researchers from complementary areas such as cryptography, quantum physics, system and software engineering will achieve this goal in a collaborative effort.
“Cryptography needs to evolve constantly in order to address today's and tomorrow's challenges. CROSSING is a key contributor to these developments, offering a great environment to set standards for future solutions.”
