Russia maintains parity with world's leading countries in cryptography

Russia maintains parity with the world's leading countries in the sphere of cryptography, Viktor Pyarin, the deputy director-general of the Federal Agency of Governmental Communications and Information /FAPSI/, under the Russian President, told a conference "The Moscow University and the Development of Cryptography in Russia", which opened at the Mikhail Lomonosov Moscow State University /MGU/ on Tuesday.

Viktor Pyarin pointed to a high level of cooperation between MGU and FAPSI in this sphere. "MGU and FAPSI experts investigate complex problems in modern cryptography and computer security and carry out research work in the sphere of quantum calculations and quantum communications," Pyarin said.

"FAPSI is Russia's leading organisation in the elaboration of cryptographic means of informational protection," Viktor Pyarin stressed. "We manage to cope with our tasks due to the work and knowledge of MGU graduates. By a modest computation, more than 500 MGU graduates used to work at the federal agency," he said.

He also pointed to the inter-disciplinary approach to the solution of cryptographic problems. Not only mathematicians, but also physicists, linguists, economists and other scientists contribute to this work.

First Deputy Security Council Secretary Vladislav Sherstyuk, also taking part in the conference, highly appraised the proposal of MGU rector Viktor Sadovnichy to hold an international cryptography conference in Moscow.
