Roles of Consortium Partners

University of Edinburgh

The University of Edinburgh team leads the consortium and will be involved in the work packages WP1, WP2, WP3, WP4 as well as use case work package for e-voting (WP5). Beyond project administration, the main contributions will be the development of cryptographic algorithms for mix-nets and their performance and security analysis.

University College London

UCL leads in WP3 and its primal responsibility is Objective 1 of the Panoramix project: Building a Mix-Net Infrastructure for Europe on which UCL will work in a close collaboration both with academic partners and industry partners. Beyond that, UCL is actively involved in WP4 on developing mix-net infrastructure, in WP5, WP6, WP7 to  serve technology options to pilots and key use-cases as well as supports WP1 and WP2.

University of Tartu

UT is one of the main contributors to WP3 as a leader in Task 3.2 studying most efficient existing non-interactive zero knowledge (NIZK) shuffle proofs both in the random oracle (RO) model and common reference string (CRS) model. UT also contributes to Task 3.1 which includes modelling the problem space, including security definitions and understanding requirements and constraints of applications and design of mechanisms to satisfy the security requirements under the stated constraints. In addition, UT will provide input on cryptographic definitions and tools for WP4, WP5, WP6 and WP7, as well as participating in dissemination activities (WP2).

KU Leuven

KUL  leads WP4 and will contribute to all three tasks: requirements and specification, design, and validation and testing.  KUL will also be involved in WP3 contributing to tasks 3.1 and 3.3 with its expertise on formalization, analysis and design of mix- nets, as well as expending some effort on WP2 and WP7.


GRNET leads WP5 in delivering an e-voting service supporting large scale elections up to hundreds of thousands of voters on top of the mix-net infrastructure developed in WP4 and provide all necessary implementation resources for its realisation. GRNET also participates in dissemination activities (WP2).


Greenhost  will take the lead in WP7 to pilot the mix-net use-case messaging. They will (in close cooperation with UCL and KUL) integrate the mix-net infrastructure developed in WP4 into the generic open-source LEAP email client as a routing option that preserves the privacy and security of email. Greenhost will also contribute to the dissemination of project results in WP2.


SAP leads WP6 in all tasks and will provide most implementation resources. The use case will be based on SAP’s current requirements as a large cloud provider in business applications. SAP will also participate in the requirements analysis in WP3 and contribute to the dissemination of project results in WP2.


The Center for the Cultivation of Technology will be responsible for the integration of the PANORAMIX mix-net technology into a development branch of a widely used open source mobile messaging application (K-9 Mail) and to perform user testing as part of WP7.
