Early Symmetric Crypto (ESC) 15-21 (tentative) January 2017 in TBA, Luxembourg

Early Symmetric Cryptography (ESC) is a bi-annual event (2008, 2010, 2013, 2015) taking place in Luxembourg and paired with Dagstuhl seminars (2007, 2009, 2012, 2014, 2016) on symmetric cryptography.

Cryptography deals with secure communication in adversarial environments as well as protecting information in storage. It is the key ingredient of information security. Applications such as electronic commerce, e-banking, secure communications (ex. mobile phones, Skype, etc.) are made possible due to advances in applied cryptography. The seminar is concentrating on:

  • symmetric primitives (block and stream ciphers, message authentication codes and hash functions), and
  • complex cryptosystems and cryptographic protocols employing these primitives
  • algorithmic challenges in public and symmetric cryptography.

The aim of the workshop is to bring together leading experts and talented junior researchers and to let them exchange ideas, open problems in an informal atmosphere.
