SUMMARY:4th Bar-Ilan Winter School on Cryptography
: Symmetric Encryption in Theory and in Practice,
Tel Aviv, Israel
DTSTART;VALUE=DATE:20140127
DTEND;VALUE=DATE:20140130
LOCATION:Tel Aviv, Israel
DESCRIPTION:The winter school will study symmetric
encryption in theory and in practice. The school
will include a study of the theoretical foundation
s of symmetric encryption on the one hand, and pra
ctical constructions and cryptanalysis on the othe
r hand. These two topics will provide a broad basi
s for all participants. The school will then proce
ed to study advanced constructions like tweakable
block ciphers, format preserving encryption, disk
encryption and advanced types of authenticated enc
ryption. Finally, the school will conclude with ad
vanced and recent attacks on symmetric encryption
in SSL/TLS, IPsec, SSH and more. The school progra
m includes approximately 24 hours of lectures and
a social dinner. The target audience for the scho
ol is graduate students and postdocs in cryptograp
hy (we will assume that participants have taken at
least one university-level course in cryptography
). However, faculty, undergrads and professionals
with the necessary background are all welcome. The
winter school is open to participants from all ov
er the world; all talks will be in English. Part
icipation is free, but registration is required. P
lease register by December 15, 2013. For more info
