Program Committee

The prospect of quantum computers is a threat against the security of currently used public key cryptographic algorithms. Public key cryptosystems including RSA and ECC/HCC will be broken by quantum algorithms. Although large-scale quantum computers do not yet exist, the goal of current research is to develop quantum-resistant cryptosystems.

This conference will explore elliptic curve crypto and post-quantum schemes (SIDH), quantum security of current elliptic curve schemes (DLP), NTRU cryptosystems. In particular we are interested in isogenies-based cryptography. This conference will provide preliminary results on developing fast algorithms and architectures for post-quantum cryptographic computations suitable for emerging embedded systems.
