Commission ” performed by SIT on behalf of IPA. The report gives an overview of the current status of the R&D support, its target, details, results, future plan and relationship between the European Commission, JIWG and JHAS. Regarding the general R&D support in Europe, the EU Framework Programmes FP6 and FP7 obviously play a major role. However, it is difficult to explicitly determine the budget situation for cryptography research. EU projects dealing with different aspects of cryptography fit into many different calls and corresponding objectives, but no specific budget is foreseen for this specific topic. Furthermore, many EU projects cover quite different key topics, and cryptography is just used as one topic within the project. The most important research targets and research results to be mentioned in Europe are obviously dominated by the Network of Excellence (NoE) ECRYPT. New research targets and implications for future plans of R&D support are indicated by the recently started follow-up project ECRYPT II. Despite its very important academic meaning, the percentage of the total research budget for th
