Summary on Grant Application Form
The University of Edinburgh (UoE) has a uniquely diverse set of academics contributing to research in Cyber Security and Privacy, reflecting the breadth of the field. Our work ranges from theoretical concepts of classical and quantum cryptography, logical foundations and verified implementations, through to applied networking technologies and socio-technical security spanning user behaviour and design, law, policy and governance. Our current themes include:

1. Cryptography and Distributed Ledger

2. Quantum-enhanced Security

3. Protocol and Program Verification

4. Socio-technical Security

5. Secure Future Networks

6. Device Security

7. Data Science Techniques

The aims of our Centre of Excellence in Cyber Security Research are:

- To provide a Edinburgh University-level hub for the horizontal theme of cyber

security and privacy, supporting multidisciplinary investigation

- To encourage outreach to end users and public sector and industry,

and translational research on new solutions.

- To support and disseminate our research among academic channels,

and in particular, by connecting and collaborating with other UK Universities.
