The Cryptography Group in the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering carries out research on a wide range of topics in the foundations and applications of cryptography. These include public-key and symmetric cryptography, obfuscation, attribute-based and functional encryption, secure multi-party computation, zero-knowledge proofs, anonymous credentials, post-quantum and quantum cryptography, information-theoretic cryptography, and more.
