E. Sakalauskas received PhD degree from Kaunas Polytechnical Institute in 1983. Currently he is a professor in Department of Applied Mathematics in Kaunas University of Technology. The scope of scientific interests is system theory, identification and cryptography. Over 50 papers were published in these fields.
In recent time his research interests are focused in cryptography. Some results were obtained in the following fields: one way functions construction based on the hard problems in non-commutative algebraic structures. Using this approach two new candidate one-way functions were proposed. Two such functions were proposed: one based on matrix discrete logarithm problem together with conjugation problem and other on matrix power function. On this base several original cryptographic protocols were proposed. The main trend of investigations is concentrated on post-quantum cryptographic systems construction potentially being resistant to quantum cryptanalysis. The main research results in cryptography were published in 17 papers.
A. Mihalkovich received PhD degree from Kaunas University of Technology in 2015. Currently he is a lecturer in Department of Applied Mathematics in Kaunas University of Technology. The main research interest is connected with non-commutative cryptography.
