Centre for Research on Cryptography and Security

Centre for Research on Cryptography and Security started in 2006 as a laboratory at Masaryk University, Faculty of Informatics. We aim to improve security and privacy through applied research (often in cooperation with industry) and advanced education of future security professionals. Supplemented by occasional beer-touring, boardgaming and juggling.
