The TIFAC-CORE in Cyber Security, will organize Workshop on Authenticated Encryption at Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, from November 23-25, 2017. The workshop aims at providing a platform for researchers, academicians, industrialists from around the nation to explore the vast potential of research and advancements in the field of authenticated encryption and its application in the field of Cyber Security. Ensuring confidentiality and integrity of communication remains among the most important goals of cryptography. The notion of authenticated encryption combines these two security goals in a single symmetric-key cryptographic primitive. A lot of effort has been invested in authenticated encryption during the last few years of its existence. This workshop explores the current landscape of results on authenticated encryption.
