We are based at the Faculty of Mathematics, Informatics and Mechanics of the University of Warsaw, where we do research and teach crypto-related courses.

Our research is supported by the Foundation for Polish Science, and the National Science Centre. Until 2013 we were also supported by the Starting grant from the European Research Council (ERC).  Our teaching is supported by the Intel Labs Security Curriculum Initiative. We also participate in a COST Action Cryptography for Secure Digital Interaction.

The group leader is Stefan Dziembowski.

We are mostly interested in the foundations of cryptography and data security, in particular in provably-secure leakage- and tamper-resilient cryptography, cryptographic protocols, information-theoretic security, and cryptographic countermeasures against malicious software attacks.

We also do consulting in the area of information security.
