April 2, 2019CYBERCRYPT hosts the WhibOx contest
CHES 2019 is the Conference on Cryptographic Hardware and Embedded Systems which will be held in Atlanta, USA, August 25-28, 2019.As part of the traditional Capture The Flag (CTF) challenge, the WhibOx contest is a whitebox cryptography competition. Divided in two separate categories, participants can either develop challenges which should resist key extraction against a whitebox attacker or they can break submitted challenges by extracting the hard-coded encryption key.CYBERCRYPT supports the motivation for the WhibOx contest, with the hope that new ideas will arise, with strong positive impact on both scientific research and industrial know-how in the field of whitebox cryptography. This is why we invite everyone to participate, confident that great contributions will augment the success of this initiative.For more information, rules and terms and condition check the CHES 2019 - The WhibOx contest and the dashboard of the competition
March 28, 2019CYBERCRYPT @ Lightweight Crypto Day 2019, Tel Aviv
The Bar-Ilan University is hosting the Lightweight Crypto Day on March 31st, 2019. The day is dedicated to research in lightweight cryptography, with the emphasis on symmetric-key cryptography targeting low-end devices.Our Senior Technology Manager Stefan Kölbl will give a talk presenting GIMLI, a 384-bit permutation designed to achieve high security with high performance across a broad range of platforms, including 64-bit Intel/AMD server CPUs, 64-bit and 32-bit ARM smartphone CPUs, 32-bit ARM microcontrollers, 8-bit AVR microcontrollers, FPGAs, ASICs without side-channel protection, and ASICs with side-channel protection.In addition, Stefan will participate to the regular ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 27 meeting on April 8, taking place in Tel Aviv as well.More information can be found on the official Lightweight Crypto Day 2019 page and on the ISO Technical Committee page.
March 20, 2019CYBERCRYPT sponsors and presents at FSE 2019, Paris
FSE 2019 is the 26th annual Fast Software Encryption workshop, organized by IACR (International Association for Cryptologic Research) and widely recognized as the internationally leading event in the area of symmetric cryptology.FSE 2019 will take place in Paris, France in March 25-28 2019. The event covers a broad range of practical and theoretical topics including the design and analysis of block ciphers, stream ciphers, hash functions, message authentication codes, authenticated encryption schemes, cryptanalysis and evaluation tools, and secure implementations. At CYBERCRYPT we strongly believe in the impact this conference has on both academia and industry, this is why, we have decided to sponsor FSE 2019: we are confident that our contribution will help promote this important event and ensure the overall success. Moreover, our founder Andrey Bogdanov, our Chief Cryptographer Elmar W. Tischhauser and our Senior Technology Manager Stefan Kölbl have all contributed to three papers that have already been accepted at FSE 2019 and will be presented at the conference. Feel free to come meet us there and have a chat, or reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org!
