Postdoc/cryptography researcher
ETH Zurich OR Crypto Quantique, London
Thanks to a collaborative project between The Applied Cryptography Group at ETH Zurich and the London-based startup Crypto Quantique, there are openings for Cryptography researchers with both institutions. The project is funded by Eureka Eurostars.

The Project Crypto Quantique’s role is to develop a novel Key Provisioning Architecture (KPA) for the generation, distribution, and certification of cryptographic keys used by lnternet of Things (IoT) devices and cloud services. The aim is to build a quantum-driven security platform by combining the KPA with cryptographic keys generated through quantum tunnelling behaviour in semiconductor devices. The Applied Cryptography Group’s main role in the project is to lead an investigation of how to transition Crypto Quantique’s KPA to use post-quantum cryptographic algorithms in the KPA protocols. They will also assist Crypto Quantique in conducting formal security analysis of the constituent protocols currently used in the KPA, and in developing and analysing new cryptographic protocols where necessary.

How to Apply? We look forward to receiving your online application with the following documents: CV; list of scientific publications; pointers to relevant software development projects, if applicable; contact details for 3 referees.
