Main current projects

+ Adversary immune data processing in ad hoc networks
short description: fundamental research project on algorithmic techniques for ad hoc (wireless) networks. The main problem for data quality in these networks is ease of attacks due to radio communication on one hand and diverse limitations for securing the network.
partner: Ben Gurion University of the Negev, research group led by Prof. Shlomi Dolev
project financed by NCN, Poland,
within Harmonia 4 Programme

+ Disability parking permit
short description: the goal of the project is to provide a prototype of a parking permit for disabled persons. Major ideas have been described in white paper Disability Parking Permit - Lightweight but Trustworthy Identity Documents , M.Kutylowski, P.Lipiak, IEEE TRUSTID 2013
project financed by PFRON, Poland

+ Optimizing access to radio channel in micronetworks
short description: applied research project on optimizing usage of radio channel in small area radio networks. The project focus is on advanced algorithmic techniques on low levels of communication protocols in self-organizing ad hoc networks.
partner: DATAX
project financed by National Centre for Research and Development (NCBiR), Poland

+ BIOPKI (webpage in Polish)
short description: R&D project devoted to issues of personal identity documents: biometric and cryptographic solutions. Our responsibilities: restricted identification schemes, forgery evidence, lightweight PKI
financed by: National Centre for Research and Development (NCBiR), Poland

Technology transfer

+ Remote elections, Platforma Obywatelska
status: finished
short description: our goal was to provide secure procedures and ballot encoding to ensure vote anonymity and results integrity. The elections took place in July and August 2013, the number of active voters of about 20K party members.
+ Self-organizing system of identification and authentication for cellular networks
status: finished
short description: developing techniques for identity handling in cellular networks in case of unavailability of the regular infrastructure. The project aims to make cellular telecommunication infrastructure more robust in case of environment disasters, terrorist attacks or severe infrastructure failures
partner: DATAX

Some finished projects

+ Detectors and sensors for measuring factors hazardous to environment - modeling and monitoring of threats
short description: designing new sensors, building a network of sensors, maintaining it, data aggregation, real-time diagnostics , and off-line data analysis.
our responsibility is to provide a intelligent application layer above physical communication for network managements that has to cope with anomalies, intrusions, failures, attempts to attack the network and manipulate the data
partners: consortium coordinated by Wroclaw University of Technology
financed by: European Union via the European Regional Development Fund and the Polish state budget, Operational Programme Innovative Economy

+ Proxy Re-Encryption: Theory and It's Applications (acting as an official foreign partner of the project)
short description: the project devoted to proxy cryptographic techniques, joint work concerned developing signature schemes for special delegation purposes
project run by: Zhejiang Gongshang University
financed by: National Natural Science Foundation of China
+ Cryptographic techniques for e-government
short description: development of security technologies for supporting e-government applications. Example areas of interest: electronic visa, restricted identification protocols, distributed RSA, domain signatures, undeniable timestamping, business models for PKI and ``sole control'', ...
financed by: Foundation for Polish Science, Poland,
a research prize received in the Programme ``MISTRZ'', technical sciences, 2009 edition
short description: R&D project aiming to construct embedded devices for mixing cryptographic tunnels established by different users for the purpose of breaking subliminal channels and leaking the channel information via kleptographic methods
partner: Microtech
financed by: National Centre for Research and Development (NCBiR), Poland
+ Electronic signature for administration purposes (webpage in Polish)
short description: R&D project aiming to provide solution for management of electronic signatures with immediately effective revocation, high assurance about the signing time, flexible security policies and security monitoring. A framework and documentation for an implementation based on mediated signatures has been delivered.
partner: TICONS
financed by: Ministry of Science and Higher Education, Poland

+ FRONTS Foundations of Adaptive Networked Societies of Tiny Artefacts, EU 7th Framework Programme,
short description: research project devoted to models, schemes and implementation issues for networks of tiny artefacts. In this project we have been responsible mainly for reliability, trust and security issues in a network that otherwise is highly unreliable, not trustworthy and insecure.

financed by: European Commission

+ DELIS Dynamically Evolving Large-scale Information Systems, EU 6th Framework Programme, Integrated Project
short description: self-organizing and self-repairing techniques for large systems. In particular we have developed techniques for anonymization of access to information and self-organization in P2P-like systems.
partners: a consortium led by Universitat Paderborn (UPB)
financed by: European Commission

+ E-voting
short description: development of a e-voting Internet platform with public verifiability.
financed by: Leslaw Paga Foundation
