International State of the Art in Cryptography - Security


Building on the workshop in Dagstuhl in June-July 2011 (International View of the State-of-the-Art of Cryptography and Security and its Use in Practice) and Beijing  (International View of the State-of-the-Art of Cryptography and Security and its Use in Practice  II) that set the stage for these discussions among a group of key researchers from Europe, Asia, and North America, the  workshop in Athens, following EuroCrypt 2013  will again bring together internationally recognized scientists and thought leaders  to assess directions and developments in  theoretical and applied cryptography and surrounding societal issues.  

The participants will discuss broad research directions in encryption and secure computation and their applications in cloud computing, smart grid, mobile and embedded computing, hardware, software, and network security. Attention will also be paid to the non-technical issues surrounding deployment and adoption of new security technologies, such as privacy aspects and economic considerations. Approaches and projects in different countries will be discussed, in order to increase awareness of the R&D activities internationally with the aim of strengthening the  cohesion of our research community. The workshop will consist of invited talks, panels and discussion sessions and it will be invitational. The focus will be on discussion.

The Workshop will cover a broad spectrum of issues from the list presented below. The topics of interest  include (but are not limited to) the following subjects:

*Secret versus public cryptography.

*Cipher and algorithm development process

*Algorithms maturity and review

*Lightweight cryptography

*New requirements for cryptography for novel applications

*Cipher implementation and interoperability

*Implementation and design issues in real-life cryptography

*Secure function and multiparty computation

*Leakage and Tamper Resilient cryptography
