Providing sensitive data privacy protection solutions is a crucial aspect in areas of high socio-economic impact. The highly innovative component and the wide applicability and transversality of technologies such as Signal Processing in Encrypted Domain (SPED), network anonymisation and “blurring” of GPS data goes beyond the limitations of the current technological solutions and provides a unique opportunity to achieve mandatory compliance of current and future legal regulations regarding data protection. The implementation of the solutions developed in this area will enhance the security and the confidence of the users on the systems to handle and process private data, without restricting the functionality offered by the companies/institutions, thus providing a crucial competitive advantage to the companies in the sector, as well as a new range of secure services that users can enjoy.
Another atlanTTic leading research field is quantum cryptography. Quantum cryptography provides total security for communications that cannot be breached even by an attacker who may have all the computing power of the Universe. In other words, these are systems that cannot be broken. In a world where sensitive or compromised information traffic is increasing through the internet, governments and institutions are aware that they must work to create secure communication networks using these protocols.
