FAster STronger cryptography
The project aims to develop better algorithms for elliptic curve cryptography with prospect of the two challenges ahead:
- securing the internet of things
- preparing towards quantum computers.
Elliptic curves are currently the fastest public-key cryptosystem (with a key size that can fit on embeded devices) while still through a different mode of operation beeing (possibly) able to resist quantum based computers.
