CryptoWorks21 is run by the Institute for Quantum Computing and the Centre for Applied Cryptographic Research at the University of Waterloo, in collaboration with colleagues at the University of Calgary’s Institute for Quantum Information Science and Institute for Security, Privacy and Information Assurance, and at the University of Montréal and McGill University. We work in collaboration with other industry, government and academic organizations around the world.
Laboratory of Quantum Information Processing and Cryptography was founded in Autumn of 2004. Research in Laboratory is aimed especially on information aspects of quantum information processing, in particular quantum cryptography, information theory, quantum communication and algorithms. Theoretical aspects of classical cryptography, especially problems solvable with security that can be proved with help of information theory, are studied as well.
