Number-Theoretic Methods in CryptologyFollow @infosec_events
InfoSec Conference Summary
The description was submitted by the Conference Organizer. We sometimes edit it to enhance the listing.
NutMiC 2019 will be the 2nd edition of a cycle of the conference on the application of number theory to cryptography and cryptanalysis. The first edition was held in September 2017 at the University of Warsaw.
The aim of the NutMic series is to cross-fertilize Number Theory and Cryptology. On one hand, this conference intends to explore current and future Number Theory challenges that arise from the rapidly evolving field of modern Cryptology. On the other hand, it targets investigating and applying Number Theoretic methods in the design and analysis of cryptologic systems and protocols. Besides the well-established connections between the two domains such as primality testing, factorization, elliptic curves, lattices (to mention a few), the conference endeavors to forge new ones that would encompass Number Theory structures and algorithms that have not successfully been used in Cryptology before. It is expected that these new connections would lead to novel, more efficient and secure cryptographic systems and protocols. Conversely, addressing problems of cryptographic origins may allow advancing the state of the art about some problems and conjectures in Number-Theory.
It is worth noting that we have a specific Cybersecurity Cryptography Events/Conferences blog post that lists a bunch of global events.
