Coding Theory and Cryptography


Jump to: navigation, search

Coding Theory is the study of reliable communication and Cryptography is the study of secret communication. It is important to note that some of the coding theoretical techniques can be used to study cryptography in secret sharing schemes, bent functions, McEliece cryptosystems, etc. Recently, Carlet, Kim, Sole, et al. introduced a new class of linear codes, called Complementary Information Set codes, in order to study side channel attacks. Moreover, public key cryptosysems based on codes such as McEliece cryptosystems are still considered secure under quantum algorithm. Therefore, the aim of this minisymposium is to invite active researchers in each area and discuss current research with the connection of Coding Theory, Cryptography, Algebra, Number Theory, and Algebraic Geometry.
