Best Cryptography Conferences 2021 – 2022

"Best In Category" Series

European Identity

The computer was invented to hack. Remember that Alan Turing’s Enigma machine was created to breach the German High Command Cryptography. With that being said we can all appreciate that this subject-matter is at the core of everything related to Cybersecurity and Information Security. I hope you enjoy my list of recommended Cryptography events and conferences.

This list includes the ones that I have personally labeled as being of particular interest to those working within the Cryptography industry. This list will be updated when notable Cryptography conferences are submitted to our directory.

About This List

As the year progresses, we will add more recommended activities for the next year; usually, this is determined by conferences submitted to our directory.

If you work in this vital area, I highly urge you to attend these events. You must attend any of these activities.

Number-Theoretic Methods in Cryptology (NuTMiC) 2021

June 14th, 2021
This Event is Now Over
Poland
More Info & Event Link

Conference Summary

The conference’s aim is to promote cross-pollination between Number Theory and Cryptology. On the one side, the conference will look at Number Theory issues that arise from the rapidly changing fields of modern cryptography. It would, on the other hand, look at Number Theory approaches for designing and analyzing cryptologic structures and protocols. Apart from the well-established links between the two domains, such as primality checking, factorization, elliptic curves, and lattices (to name a few), the conference aims to forge new ones, such as Number Theory constructs and algorithms that have never been used in Cryptology before.


8th ACM ASIA Public-Key Cryptography Workshop (APKC) 2021

China
More Info & Event Link

Conference Summary

A fascinating Cryptography case. If you submitted your thesis, you’ll have a chance to win the Best Paper award, but this isn’t a competition; it’s a gathering aimed at assisting other professionals.

RSA Conference USA
February 24th, 2020
United States

• Past Review •

The RSA conference is a regular calendar fixture for cryptologists and Cybersecurity professionals. It would be strange not to include the RSA conference in our cryptology conferences “round up” because, after all, the event itself is named after one of the most important cryptology innovations.

Whilst RSA conference has evolved into dozens of tracks cryptology still remains at the core all of this must attend conference for cryptologists.

The RSA conference takes place at the start of every year, and also now takes place in other cities around the world.

Black Alps Cyber Security Conference
November 5th, 2020
Switzerland

• Past Review •

Switzerland  is a country pioneering many new Innovations within the cryptology niche. The Black Apls Conference  typically contains a decent amount of cryptoloigcal  content, and  I also wanted to include a  conference outside of the United Kingdom and the United States,  where are most conferences take place.

Needless to say,  if you are working with privacy,  cybersecurity and/or cryptology,  and work in central Europe (DACH region)  then this conference might be of interest.

Kaspersky Security Analyst Summit (SAS)
November 18th, 2020
Spain

• Past Review •

I included the Kaspersky conference because the emphasis is on cryptography and cyber crime.  this conference does have other subject matter but I like the fact that cryptography and cybercrime were mentions and will be discussed.


✓ Previously Recommended In 2020

Expect to discuss the following items within the Cryptology remit at this event.

  • Access control
  • Authentication and authorization
  • Biometrics
  • Cloud security
  • Cryptocurrencies
  • Cryptology
  • Database security
  • Digital forensics
  • Evaluation and certification
  • Identity management
  • Intrusion detection
