The Advanced Reserach in Cryptography (ARC) group is a part of the Department of Computer Science here at Johns Hopkins University. Our research covers both the theoretical and applied aspects of cryptography.

We meet on a regular basis for reading groups covering various facets of cryptography. Please sign up on the mailing list for updates. If you would like to give a talk, please send us an email at crypto [at] cs [dot] jhu [dot] edu.

We've created a repository for compiling recent applied cryptography papers. Check it out at

Also check out our sister group that we work closely with: Security and Privacy Applied Research (SPAR).
