Project title: CRIS&S (Codes in the Rank metric, Information Security & Storage)

Host Institution: Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e)

Host Supervisor: Prof. Alberto Ravagnani

Co-host Institution: École Polytechnique (L’X)

Co-host Supervisor: Prof. Alain Couvreur

Summary project: Information security and data integrity are, and will continue to be, some of the greatest challenges of the modern world. Strategies that have been recently proposed to guarantee these are based on error-correcting codes, and in particular on rank-metric codes. Having access to a large variety of rank-metric codes with different properties is crucial for the aforementioned strategies to be implemented and made robust.

The goal of this project is twofold. On the one hand, to apply sophisticated methods from algebra and algebraic geometry to construct new general families of rank-metric codes. On the other hand, to exploit their properties and structure for applications to distributed storage systems and code-based cryptography.

EuroTechPostdoc2 Programme

Within the EuroTechPostdoc2 programme, the universities of the EuroTech Universities Alliance offer seventy Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowships to experienced high-potential researchers, in two calls for 35 fellows each. Besides giving the fellows the freedom to establish their own research lines, the programme provides exceptional training opportunities to prepare the fellows for a future as part of the new generation of scientific leaders, within and outside of academia.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement no. 899987.
