InfoSec Conference Summary
The description was submitted by the Conference Organizer. We sometimes edit it to enhance the listing.
Initiated in 1994, the Selected Areas in Cryptography (SAC) event series was first held at Queen’s University in Kingston. The SAC conference has been held annually since 1994 in different Canadian locations, including:
- St. Johns
SAC 2019 is held in co-operation with the International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR), which is one of the leading scholarly organization for cryptographic research. The SAC proceedings are published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.
There are four areas covered at each SAC conference. Three of the areas are permanent.
- Design and analysis of symmetric-key primitives and cryptosystems, including block and stream ciphers, hash function, MAC algorithms, cryptographic permutations, and authenticated encryption schemes;
- Efficient implementations of symmetric and public-key algorithms; and
- Mathematical and algorithmic aspects of applied cryptology.
- Real-world cryptography/cryptographic protocols in practice.
