by Ministry of Education in 2007. It aims to become a high level
base for studying the theoretical foundations of cryptography and
information security technology, and training excellent researchers.
There are four research fields: theory of
cryptology, application of cryptography and security techniques,
secure computation of number theory and algebra, and security of
network and system.
The laboratory has
