Affiliated Event: Workshop on Attacks in Cryptography 2 (WAC2)


Cryptography is often thought of as the bright spot of practical security, a mathematical paradise where security can be rigorously proven and issues like buffer overflows are in someone else’s department. However, there is a growing community of researchers who regularly find serious flaws in widely deployed cryptographic implementations and protocols. In recent years, this type of research has mostly been published in systems security conferences. This workshop will bring together researchers who work on cryptographic attacks and provide a showcase of their work for the Crypto community. This is the second edition of the WAC workshop, which has been established by Nadia Heninger.

The talks are now online:


  • Juraj Somorovsky (Ruhr University Bochum)



The workshop has been supported by CASA, Hackmanit, and FutureTrust.
