On 15th September 2015 the Faculty of Cybernetics of the Military University of Technology has expanded its research and education facilities with the newly established Information Security and Cryptographic Calculations Centre. The President of UKE, Magdalena Gaj, participated in the opening ceremony of the Centre.

 

Thanks to the commitment of experts – including the ones from outside the Military University of Technology, it was possible to establish the research facility within one year. The research facility is unique in the country and its output will be used by public administration institutions. The Centre’s activities will include research and development projects (cryptology, education, optoelectronics) as well as security of networks, information systems, optical fibre links and distributed computing. The Faculty of Cybernetics of the Military University of Technology has also set up a new major “Cryptology and Cybersecurity”.

In her speech the President of UKE, Magdalena Gaj, underlined satisfaction from the cooperation with the Military University of Technology that has been continued for several years. The participation of UKE in research projects carried out by the researchers from the Faculty of Cybernetics and the Department of Optoelectronics of the Military University of Technology serves as a specific example of the cooperation. Unique solutions based on radio and optical fibre technology, aiming to secure the information transmission, were developed within the framework of the projects. Thanks to the cooperation between the experts from UKE and the Military University of Technology it was also possible to organise a conference on radio networks and security of information transmission. The President of UKE added that she is awaiting also new professionals since it has been so hard to find well-trained specialists in the area of cybersecurity and telecommunications, and a part of UKE’s statutory tasks covers these aspects.

The newly opened laboratory is characteristic of not only a high computing capacity, which may be used to solve scientific problems, but it is primarily a tool supporting the creation of  national cryptographic algorithms and cracking foreign ciphers. Together with the classrooms it is also the most advanced didactic facility in the country, available for the purpose of training future specialists for the institutions responsible for the national security.
