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.
