Cryptography for Emerging Technologies and Applications

Tuesday, August 23, 2011



The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is hosting a workshop on Cryptography for Emerging Technologies and Applications that is intended to identify the cryptographic requirements for emerging technologies and applications.

The workshop provides an opportunity for industry, research and academia communities, and government sectors, to identify cryptographic challenges encountered in their development of emerging technologies and applications, and to learn about NIST's current cryptographic research, activities, programs and standards development.

In preparation for the workshop, NIST calls for the submission of abstracts that identify cryptographic challenges identified during the research and development of emerging technologies and applications.

Submitted abstracts will be posted on before the workshop, and the authors of selected abstracts will be invited to present their work during the workshop. The deadline for abstract submission is September 26, 2011 at 5:00 PM Eastern Daylight Saving Time.

Examples of emerging or evolving technology spaces include: 

  • Sensor and building networks
  • Mobile devices
  • Smart Objects/Internet of Things, and
  • Cyber physical systems

Examples of cryptographic requirements for emerging sectors might include performance or resource issues, cryptographic services (such as anonymous or group signatures), or key management challenges. 

Authors are welcome to identify, through their submissions, other areas of cryptography for emerging technologies and applications that are not listed above.
