Graz University of Technology sets cryptography standards

The work of a team at the Graz University of Technology sets new standards in the field of cryptography. The ASCON algorithm developed in 2014 at the Institute of Applied Information Processing and Communications was submitted to the international Competition for Authenticated Encryption: Security, Applicability, and Robustness, also known as the CAESAR competition. The algorithm was tested for five years and assessed in terms of its cryptanalytic and practical security. It set such high standards of security and efficiency that the high-caliber jury selected the university’s encryption procedure as its primary recommendation for what are known as lightweight applications. These applications are used mainly for systems that do not run on expensive, high-end desktop PCs, notebooks and smartphones, for example typical everyday “smart” devices and industrial logistics modules with slow processors, small memory and a passive power supply.

The new research allowance in Germany – in competition with the Austrian research tax credit?

Companies carrying out research and development in Austria have the possibility to apply for research funding, namely the so-called research tax credit. In an international comparison, the Austrian research tax credit is a recipe for success and is designed to showcase and enhance the attractiveness of Austria as a research location. The successive increase in the research tax credit from the original level of three percent in 2002 to 14 percent at present has made a massive contribution to this success.
