Centre for Research on Cryptography and Security

Centre for Research on Cryptography and Security is a laboratory established in 2006 at the Masaryk University. We aim to improve the 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.
