Glowing Hot Topics in Cryptography:
Cryptographic Agility

ABOUT

In Glowing Hot Topics in Cryptography (GHTC) series of workshops, we aim to organize a one-day round table event discussing some of the hottest topics in cryptography. The round tables will feature world renown panelist from both industry, and academy. GHTC is an affiliated workshop of Crypto and in its first 2022 edition will feature the topic of cryptographic agility.

PROGRAM

TITLE
An overview of NIST post-quantum standardization project
ABSTRACT
With the NIST Standardization process so close to finishing (it could be as soon as this April), we would like to understand better the process from inside and from outside. What is the process from the inside? How to qualify submissions objectively? What’s the thrill of getting your submission accepted or the disappointment of getting it rejected in later rounds?
PANELISTS
We are considering the following panelists for this round table:
Dustin Moody

National Institute of Standards and Technology
USA

Peter Schwabe

Max Planck Institute
Germany

Luca De Feo

TITLE
Agility for converging to a PQ world
ABSTRACT
After seeing how different the PQ primitives from the Classical ones are, we would like to understand how PQ affects our Crypto world. After Mosca’s theorem, how and when to adopt PQ primitives? What are some techniques to migrate (when needed) from Classical to PQ? How can we mix and match Classical and PQ to maintain the four pillars of Crypto?
PANELISTS
We are considering the following panelists for this round table:

TITLE
Crypto Agility in the context of lightweight primitives
ABSTRACT
Crypto Agility can also benefit lightweight primitives (mainly block ciphers, stream ciphers, hash functions) by allowing evolution in the IoT world. We would like to understand how Crypto Agility can help with software and hardware, so both big and small devices and primitives can apply it.
PANELISTS
We are considering the following panelists for this round table:
Guido Bertoni

TITLE
Lessons learned
ABSTRACT
in this final panel, we reviewed all the ideas, caveats and main comments given in the first three round tables.
