The first concrete project of the center is to build a full implementation of a quantum cryptography device. This covers both the physical implementation of quantum transmission, and postprocessing of results based on techniques from computer science. This is an application oriented project, with a main emphasis on studying the practical potential of the technology. Related to this are activities studying assumptions sufficient for quantum bit commitment and oblivious transfer, and the relation between classical and quantum cryptography.

In parallel with this, but as a longer term project is the study of quantum computing from a computer science point of view and experimental activities aimed at storage of quantum information.
