Call for Papers

The RSA Conference is the largest annual computer security event, with over 350 vendors, and thousands of attendees. The Cryptographers' Track (CT-RSA) is a research conference within the RSA Conference. CT-RSA has begun in 2002, and has become an established venue for presenting cryptographic research papers. Special academic discount for registration will be available, as well as a waiver for speakers presenting papers accepted to CT-RSA 2011.

Keynote Talks.

This year we are very pleased to have three keynote talks : 

Dan Boneh (Stanford) on Computing with Signed Data (tentative)

Dickie George (NSA) on NSA's Role in DES.

Abstract. This talk will reveal NSA's role in the development of the Data Encryption Standard. This information has not been made public before. Much speculation has been made by outsiders about this topic - here's the information from an insider

Adi Shamir (Weizmann) on Academia’s Role in DES. Featuring a presentation by Martin Hellman.
