We propose cryptosystems based on subgroup distortion in hyperbolic groups. We also include examples of Hyperbolic groups with exponentially and exp(exp) distorted subgroups that would be useful for the protocols.

Joint work with Indira Chatterji (University of Nice, France) and Ni Lu (CUNY Graduate Center, USA).
