 Our Review

SAC is Canada’s annual cryptography research conference, which has been held every year since 1994. The University of Victoria in British Columbia, Canada, was set to host the 28th edition of SAC. Due to COVID 19 travel limitations, SAC 2021 will be held virtually from September 29 to October 1, 2021, with a two-day Summer School on September 27 and 28, 2021, before it.

Conference Event Summary

The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Thursday, July 8th 2021, or created by us.

SAC is Canada’s research conference on cryptography, held annually since 1994. The 28th edition of SAC was supposed to take place at the University of Victoria in British Columbia, Canada. However, due to COVID 19 travel restrictions, SAC 2021 will run as a virtual event from September 29 to October 01, 2021, and will be preceded by a two-day Summer School on September 27 and 28, 2021.

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 functions, MAC algorithms, cryptographic permutations, and authenticated encryption schemes.
  • Efficient implementations of the symmetric, public key, and post-quantum cryptography.
  • Mathematical and algorithmic aspects of applied cryptology, including post-quantum cryptology.

The fourth area for SAC 2021 is

  • Privacy-enhancing mechanisms and techniques.
