Chaos-based cryptography: a new promise to online security

A team of researchers at IFSC at the University of S. Paulo is working on the development and improvement of a new encryption system based on chaos theory, more efficient than conventional methods which could offer better security for online financial transactions, for instances, with the advantage of operating at high speed even on devices with limited hardware and low processing capacity.

SCG - Scientific Computing Group

The SCG is an interdisciplinary scientific research group whose main goal is integrating Computer Science, Mathematics and Physics into the study of theoretical and applied scientific challenges. The SCG's main interests are: Computer Vision, Image Analysis, Pattern Recognition, Artificial Intelligence and Non-linear Science. The principal mathematical tools researched are Chaos and Fractals, Multiscale Analysis, Automata and Complex Networks (Graph theory with statistical analysis). The SCG's applications include: biodiversity, plant biology, bioimageinformatics, nanoscale image analysis (Material Sciences) and cryptography. Our motivation is thinking about Science as a symbiose among different study fields where, each area is inter-connected and the multidisciplinarity promotes advances for the whole Science.
