Scientific Advisory Board

Scytl’s Scientific Advisory Board is formed by renowned leading experts in the field of cryptography and eVoting security. Since Scytl’s foundation the Scientific Advisory Board, along with Scytl’s R&D Department, has played a critical role in maintaining Scytl’s leadership position in the election modernization and eVoting industries. Both teams work together in the definition of Scytl’s general guidelines in research efforts. The Scientific Advisory Board also keeps Scytl informed of the latest academic developments in security and cryptography.
