Research area Proofs and designs for cryptographic protocols The cryptology group in the Information Security Institute has extensive experience in design and analysis of cryptographic protocols. This includes generic protocols for authentication and key establishment as well as protocols aimed at specific technologies such as RFID devices and industrial control systems. User-oriented security protocols It is today widely recognised that technological solutions must be combined with social disciplines in order to achieve truly secure systems. This emerging research area aims to use ideas from economics and psychology to produce integrated security models and to analyse protocols from this new perspective.
