Workshop on Advances in Cryptography & Coding
10 March 2015, Gothenburg, Sweden


The Chalmers Workshop on Advances in Cryptography and Coding serves as a meeting place for diverse researchers in security, privacy, and coding theory. The goal is to discuss recent advances in cryptography and coding theory that can be used for the design of secure and private communications. We focus on efficient and privacy-preserving authentication protocols since often communication is performed in constrained settings due to limited resources, noise and/or privacy issues. A subgoal is to explore and discuss practical security approaches for authentication by employing cryptographic primitives in combination with coding theory and/or characteristics of the physical layer.
