Cryptanalysis Taskforce



Established in 2014, we are a group of cryptography researchers from Nanyang Technological University in Singapore. Our research focuses are symmetric-key cryptology and privacy-preserving technologies. We are physically hosted by the Division of Mathematical Sciences of the School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, have been part of Temasek Laboratories @ NTU and Coding and Cryptography Research Group, and in collaboration with Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China.

We are constantly looking for PhD candidates and Post-Doctoral Research Fellows, and maintain a regular visitor/exchange program, if you are interested in any of them, please contact Jian Guo.

We are grateful to our funders and sponsors:
