Wultra Partners With Raiffeisenbank Competence Centre for Cryptology and Biometrics

Security research, especially the research in cryptography, requires both a strong academic background, as well as competent software engineering skills. We are ready for the next generation of technological challenges and improvements in both areas. This is why we are pleased to announce that we are teaming up with Raiffeisenbank Competence Centre for Cryptography and Biometrics led by Tomáš Rosa to boost our theoretical research capabilities.

In partnership with Raiffeisenbank, we will work on the most critical cybersecurity problems for the next decade, including complex issues such as passwordless authentication, digital identity, and — probably the most challenging topic — the post-quantum cryptography.

We already have excellent cooperation with the Raiffeisenbank. Our RB Key authenticator app, as well as mobile banking protection technologies, are the practical testaments of that. We are pleased that we can cooperate with Raiffeisenbank on the most fundamental security related topics for the future.

Quantum computing is reality, there is no time to spend by disputing this. We shall rather search for the algorithms that are resistant to this extraordinary force, as we need to deploy them urgently. Otherwise, by the principle of retroactive cryptanalysis (capture today, break tomorrow), our current “protection” is nothing but sending open letters to the future.

— Tomáš Rosa, Chief Cryptologist at Raiffeisenbank

You will see some results of this cooperation very soon. Petr Dvořák, our CEO, will join forces with Tomáš Rosa, the chief cryptologist at Raiffeisenbank, to provide an introduction to post-quantum cryptography at the QuBit Conference Prague 2020.
