The Computer Security and Communication Secrecy Institute of Southwest Jiaotong University (CSCSI) was established in 1995. The Chinese Chengdu High Performance Computing Center was founded in Nov. 1997, and renamed as National High Performance Computing Center(Chengdu) by Department of High Technology, Ministry of Science and Technology in May. 1998. These two research institutions were merged into the Laboratory of Information Security and National Computing Grid of Southwest Jiaotong University, which was approved as Sichuan Provincial Key Laboratory of Higher Education. The lab focuses on major research areas: cryptographic design and cryptanalysis, mobile communication security, information security engineering, parallel algorithm design, cloud computing security, spreading sequence. An outstanding research team has been brought together with professor Xiaohu Tang (a winner of the National Outstanding Young Scientist Fund) as its academic leader. The research team has received National Outstanding Young Scientist Award once, National excellent Doctoral Dissertation award twice and New Century Excellent Talent Supporting Program of the Ministry of Education once. Till now, the laboratory has undertaken more than sixty research projects, including 20 plus projects at national level such as National High-Tech Project of China (863-Project) and National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC). Meanwhile, over ten academic writings are published, more than two hundred research papers appear in international and national academic periodicals, and a number of inventions are patented. In recent years, the laboratory has promoted extensive international cooperation and exchange programs to establish partnerships with academic institutions at home and abroad. Several Members of the Laboratory were appointed as chairman or members of international academic conferences and procedural committees, one member served formerly as vice president of Chinese Association for Cryptologic Research(CACR), one member served currently as editor in chief of CACR letters.
