Challenges in standardising cryptography
Chris Mitchell, Royal Holloway
Developments in cryptography over the last 40 years have often been driven by the publication of standards, born out of a desire to promote best practice and encourage interworking. However, deciding what to standardise, how to maintain standards, how to promulgate newly identified issues with standards, and most of all encouraging standards adoption, are all highly problematic questions. This talk will explore these issues, illustrated with examples of where things have not gone as well as they could have!
Development of cryptography in India
Bimal Roy, Indian Statistical Institute
Cryptology has come a long way, from being of practical interest to only the Governments and armed forces, to an interdisciplinary academic discipline in the modern era of digital communication and e-commerce. The journey of the subject from confidential military documents to open academic literature is more or less the same in India as in the other parts of the world. In this talk, I will present the evolution of cryptography in Indian academia, since 1990, highlighting the major results produced during the last two decades. I will also focus on the dissemination of cryptography education in India during this period, inception of Cryptology Research Society of India inspired by IACR, and the history of the international conference Indocrypt, which connected us to the vibrant global community in cryptology and allied disciplines.
