Company Monet+ is an important long-term partner of CRoCS laboratory. The company focuses on the development of authentication and security mechanisms for the financial sector. Within the framework of this cooperation, several students were supported, and dozens of theses were defended.

The first joint project involved research and development in the field of hardware tokens. Then, research into user perception of two-factor authentication methods was conducted with the AHEAD subsidiary. The current topic of cooperation is the area of blockchain technologies and cryptographic protocols for secure multi-party computing.

Secure multi-party computation

  • Design of a solution for efficient two-party signing for bilateral authentication and authorization of transactions.
