Centre for Advanced Computing - Algorithms and Cryptography
The Centre for Advanced Computing - Algorithms and Cryptography (ACAC) acts as a focal point for joint research activities between its members who come from diverse backgrounds in Physics, Mathematics and Computing. Our vision is to be the leading centre in Australasia for research into algorithms, complexity and cryptography applied to advanced computing systems. We have determined a mission to develop algorithms and cryptographic methods and protocols for applications to advanced information and computation systems.
The Centre has its origins in the 'Algorithms and Complexity' group, founded in 1996 by Professor Bernard Mans, Dr Scott McCallum and Professor Igor Shparlinski. In 2001-2002, Professor Josef Pieprzyk and Dr Christophe Doche joined the group.
Our recent PhD graduates are holding postdoc positions in Technical University of Denmark, Helsinki University of Technology, Tsinghua University in Beijing, and Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.

Future Fellowship Awarded to Dr Frederik Vercauteren with Project entitled "Homomorphic cryptography: computing on encrypted data", which will run from 2012 to 2015. The project is driven by the groundbreaking application of a new cryptographic technology that allows analysis of encrypted data without needing to decrypt it first. The results of this project can be used to enable secure remote data storage, electronic auctions and voting, and protecting medical records. CONGRATULATIONS!
PhD Awarded to Kang Leng Chiew with his PhD thesis entitled "Steganalysis of Binary Images" and also Stephen McCombie with "Phishing the long line: Transnational Cybercrime From Eastern Europe to Australia"
