Cryptography Group

Department of Computer Science
University of Texas at Austin

The Cryptography Group in the Department of Computer Science at UT Austin studies a broad range of problems in both theoretical and applied cryptography. Our work covers advanced public-key cryptographic primitives such as homomorphic encryption and functional encryption, cryptographic proof systems, program obfuscation, and more. For more details, see our recent publications.
