A joint research project of the Universitat Rovira i Virgili, Tarragona and the Eotvos University, Budapest
Funded by the European Union FP5 IST FET Open programme
Co-orthogonal codes are a newly discovered class of codes with attractive
properties and possible applications in Cryptography and Data Security.
Our objectives are to examine the applicability of co-orthogonal
codes in cryptographic and data security applications (including smart-card
technologies, watermarking, entity authentication). Co-orthogonal codes
are very new mathematical phenomenon, discovered by one of the partners
in the project. Their relatively high rate falsified long standing (20
years old) mathematical conjectures, causing surprise in combinatorics.
The goal of the present project is gathering experts from very different
backgrounds to facilitate a possible conversion of this discovery in theoretical
mathematics into an industrial product.
