Research, develop, engineer, and standardize cryptographic algorithms, methods, and protocols.
The Cryptographic Technology Groupís (CTG) work in cryptographic mechanisms addresses topics such as hash algorithms, symmetric and asymmetric cryptographic techniques, key management, authentication, and random number generation. Strong cryptography is used to improve the security of information systems and the information they process. Users then take advantage of the availability of secure applications in the marketplace made possible by the appropriate use of standardized, high quality cryptography.
