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 fourth edition of the WAC workshop, which has been established by Nadia Heninger.
This workshop will take place virtually on Sunday, August 15, 2021 as an affiliated event of Crypto 2021.
Each speaker will give a 15 minute live talk, followed by 5 minutes of Q&A. A longer version of each talk will be linked below in advance of the event.
Please note that this is a tenative schedule and subject to change.
