Head of the Advanced Cybersecurity Lab
Currently, Jan Hajny deals with privacy-enhancing cryptographic systems. His research is focused on the design of new authentication protocols, credential schemes and privacy-protection systems. Jan is also responsible for IT infrastructure benchmarking, stress testing, security audits, penetration testing and vulnerability scanning.
Privacy-Enhancing Technologies & Hardware-Accelerated Cryptography
Lukas Malina deals with applied cryptography, system security and network security. His research activities focus on the design and application of privacy-preserving cryptographic protocols, post-quantum cryptography and hardware-accelerated cryptography. Lukas is also responsible for the implementations of cryptographic protocols and schemes as „a proof of concept“ applications on various devices such as constrained microcontrollers, smart devices and FPGA-based platforms.
Security in Industrial and Smart-Grid Networks
Zdenek Martinasek deals with applied cryptography, system security and network security. Currently, he works also on penetration testing and stress testing. His research activities focus on side channel cryptanalysis. The biggest expertise is in power analysis attacks based on machine learning.
Petr Dzurenda is a postdoctoral researcher at Brno University of Technology in Czech Republic. His research is focused on privacy-enhancing technologies, cryptographic protocol design and protocol implementation on constrained devices in IoT area. He is author and co-author of several new privacy-friendly solutions and cryptographic schemes, such as group signatures and anonymous credentials, which are practically implementable on current smart cards.
Sara Ricci is a postdoctoral researcher at Brno University of Technology, Czech Republic. She accomplished her M.Sc. degree in Mathematics at University of Pisa, Italy in 2015 and her PhD studies in Computer Engineering and Mathematics Security at Universitat Rovira i Virgili, Spain in 2018. Her research interest are theoretical cryptography, in particular lattice-based and elliptic curve cryptography, and data privacy and security. She is also focused on the design of new privacy-preserving cryptographic protocols and their security analyses.
