Coding for Security and DNA Storage

Project description

New ways to avoid data breaches

Communication and data storage systems are indispensable parts of our every-day life. However, these systems deal with severe challenges in security and reliability. Security is important whenever a user communicates or stores sensitive data such as medical information; and reliability has to be guaranteed to be able to transmit or store information while noise occurs, for example. Algebraic codes (ACs) are a powerful means to achieve both. The EU-funded inCREASE project will construct and evaluate special codes for security applications and DNA storage. In particular, the project studies post-quantum secure code-based cryptosystems; secure key regeneration based on ACs; and ACs for DNA-based storage systems. The focus of inCREASE lies on using insertion/deletion-correcting codes.
