Public-Key Cryptography

when 7 August 2016 - 12 August 2016
language English
duration 1 week
fee EUR 100

The summer school gives an overview of two algorithmically difficult problem classes that are used in public-key cryptography (PKC): computing discrete logarithms and problems in (integer) lattices. Participants will thus learn new developments in an established problem in PKC (dLog-based systems) and in one of the most promising new areas (lattice-based cryptography).
For IT security the real implementation with all its side effects is one of the biggest problems. Almost all successful attacks on security systems exploit vulnerabilities in the implementation (software or hardware). An approach that uses coding theory for countermeasures to side-channel attacks covers this topic.
