Anuncio: Post-quantum Cryptography Course

Post-quantum Cryptography is the Public Key Cryptography (PKC) secure against quantum computers. The future quantum computers will break RSA and ECC thanks to the celebrated Shor's algorithm, rendering Internet and electronic commerce insecure. The american institute of standards (NIST) launched an open contest to select and standardize quantum safe (post-quantum) PKC schemes.The open call ended in November 2017,most of the surviving candidates being based on lattices, error correcting codes and polynomial maps.

Dates: 10-14 September 2018 (5 sessions)
Time: 09:30 - 11:30 (a total of 10 hours) Organized by: BCAM & UPV/EHU

Objective: The objective of this course is to present the state of the art of cryptosystems based on those three technologies, and at the same time introduce the audience into the main ideas and methods of modern cryptography. The course does not assume much mathematical background, and the main concepts and ideas will be introduced along it. It should be accessible to master students.
