Numerous Accepted CASA Papers at the IACR CRYPTO 22

The prestigious conference on cryptography takes place in Santa Barbara, USA, from August 13. - 18.

On this year’s IACR CRYPTO, the Cluster of Excellence CASA is well represented. Numerous scientist will present their papers on topics like public-key cryptography, password-authenticated key exchange and symmetric ciphers among others in Santa Barbara, USA, from August 13 - 18.

The conference is one of the most important events in the field of cryptography and was established in 1981. Since the Corona days, the conference will be held this year for the first time in presence.

The following papers have been accepted.

Simon's Algorithm and Symmetric Crypto: Generalizations and Automatized Applications.
Federico Canale, Gregor Leander, Lukas Stennes

Constructing and Deconstructing Intentional Weaknesses in Symmetric Ciphers.
Christoph Beierle, Thomas Beyne, Patrick Felke, Gregor Leander

Lattice-Based Preprocessing SNARKs: Publicly Verifiable and Recursively Composable.
Martin Albrecht, Valerio Cini, Russell W. F. Lai, Giulio Malavolta, and Sri Aravinda Krishnan Thyagarajan

Succinct Classical Verification of Quantum Computation.
James Bartusek, Yael Kalai, Alex Lombardi, Fermi Ma, Giulio Malavolta, Vinod Vaikuntanathan, Thomas Vidick, and Lisa Yang

Partial Key Exposure Attacks on BIKE, Rainbow and NTRU.
Andre Esser, Alexander May, Javier Verbel, and Weiqiang Wen

Password-Authenticated Key Exchange from Group Actions.
Doreen Riepel, Eike Kiltz, Michel Abdalla, Sabrina Kunzweiler, Thorsten Eisenhofer. This paper one is a result of a CASA cross-disciplinary project (together with Thorsten Holz, HUB C) and the Distinguished Visit by Michel Abdalla (CNRS).

The cross-disciplinary projects are an integral part of our CASA Graduate School. PhDs here collaborate for at least 6 weeks with a research group from another CASA PI researching a cross-disciplinary research problem. Interdisciplinarity is one of the core elements of the Cluster of Excellence designed and intended to be both taught and learned here.
