4-7 February 2013, Bilinear Pairings in Cryptography, Bar-Ilan University, Tel Aviv, Israel

Date: 4-7 February 2013
Location: Bar-Ilan University, Tel Aviv, Israel
Costs: free

The winter school will provide an in depth coverage of bilinear pairings and their role in cryptographic constructions. Among other things, we will study the basics of elliptic curves and elliptic curve cryptography, the basics of pairings, and the mathematics behind how pairings work and how to efficiently compute them. In addition, we will study the many applications of pairings to cryptography, including identity-based encryption (IBE) and variants, attribute-based encryption, functional encryption, broadcast encryption, anonymous credentials and non-interactive zero-knowledge. The school program includes approximately 20 hours of lectures and a social dinner.

The target audience for the school is graduate students and postdocs in cryptography (we will assume background in cryptography, but not elliptic curves or bilinear maps). However, faculty, undergrads and professionals with the necessary background are all welcome. The winter school is open to participants from all over the world; all talks will be in English.
