Information Theoretic Security

ICITS 2008,the Third InternationalConference on Information Theoretic Se- rity, was held in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, during August 10–13, 2008, at the Universityof Calgary.This seriesof conferences wasstarted with the 2005IEEE InformationTheoryWorkshoponTheoryandPracticein Information-Theoretic Security (ITW 2005,Japan), held on Awaji Island, Japan, October 16–19,2005. The conference series aims at bringing focus to security research when there is no unproven computational assumption on the adversary. This is the fra- work proposed by Claude Shannon in his seminal paper formalizing modern unclassi?ed research on cryptography. Over the last few decades, Shannon's approach to formalizing security has been used in various other areas including authentication, secure communication, key exchange, multiparty computation and information hiding to name a few. Coding theory has also proven to be a powerful tool in the construction of security systems with information theoretic security. Therewere43submitted papers ofwhich14wereaccepted.Eachcontributed paper was reviewed by three members of the Program Committee. In the case of co-authorship by a Program Committee member the paper was reviewed by ?ve members of the committee (no committee member reviewed their own s- mission). In addition to the accepted papers, the conference also included nine invited speakers, whose contributions were not refereed. These proceedings c- tain the acceptedpapers with anyrevisionsrequiredbythe ProgramCommittee as well as the contributions by invited speakers.

Applied Cryptography

From the world's most renowned security technologist, Bruce Schneier, this 20th Anniversary Edition is the most definitive reference on cryptography ever published and is the seminal work on cryptography. Cryptographic techniques have applications far beyond the obvious uses of encoding and decoding information. For developers who need to know about capabilities, such as digital signatures, that depend on cryptographic techniques, there's no better overview than Applied Cryptography, the definitive book on the subject. Bruce Schneier covers general classes of cryptographic protocols and then specific techniques, detailing the inner workings of real-world cryptographic algorithms including the Data Encryption Standard and RSA public-key cryptosystems. The book includes source-code listings and extensive advice on the practical aspects of cryptography implementation, such as the importance of generating truly random numbers and of keeping keys secure. ". . .the best introduction to cryptography I've ever seen. . . .The book the National Security Agency wanted never to be published. . . ." -Wired Magazine ". . .monumental . . . fascinating . . . comprehensive . . . the definitive work on cryptography for computer programmers . . ." -Dr. Dobb's Journal ". . .easily ranks as one of the most authoritative in its field." -PC Magazine The book details how programmers and electronic communications professionals can use cryptography-the technique of enciphering and deciphering messages-to maintain the privacy of computer data. It describes dozens of cryptography algorithms, gives practical advice on how to implement them into cryptographic software, and shows how they can be used to solve security problems. The book shows programmers who design computer applications, networks, and storage systems how they can build security into their software and systems. With a new Introduction by the author, this premium edition will be a keepsake for all those committed to computer and cyber security.

Security and Privacy in Dynamic Environments

This book contains the Proceedings of the 21st IFIP TC-11 International Information Security Conference (IFIPISEC 2006) on "Security and Privacy in Dynamic Envir- ments" held in May 22-24 2006 in Karlstad, Sweden. The first IFIPISEC conference was arranged in May 1983 in Stockholm, Sweden, one year before TC- 1 1 was founded, with the active participation of the Swedish IT Security Community. The IFIPISEC conferences have since then become the flagship events of TC-11. We are very pleased that we succeeded with our bid to after 23 years hold the IFIPISEC conference again in Sweden. The IT environment now includes novel, dynamic approaches such as mobility, wearability, ubiquity, ad hoc use, mindhody orientation, and businesslmarket ori- tation. This modem environment challenges the whole information security research community to focus on interdisciplinary and holistic approaches whilst retaining the benefit of previous research efforts. Papers offering research contributions focusing on dynamic environments in addition to other aspects of computer security and privacy were solicited for submission to IFIPISEC 2006. We received 141 submissions which were all reviewed by at least three members of the international program committee.

Topics in Cryptology     CT RSA 2008

The RSA Conference is the largest regularly-staged computer security event, with over 350 vendors and many thousands of attendees. The Cryptographers’ Track (CT-RSA) is a research conference within the RSA Conference. CT-RSA began in 2001, and has become one of the major established venues for presenting cryptographic research papers to a wide variety of audiences. CT-RSA 2008 was held in San Francisco, California from April 8 to April 11. The proceedings of CT-RSA 2008 contain 26 papers selected from 95 subm- sions pertaining to all aspects of cryptography. Each submission was reviewed by at least three reviewers, which was made possible by the hard work of 27 P- gram Committee members and many external reviewers listed on the following pages. The papers were selected following a detailed online discussion among the Program Committee members. The program included an invited talk by Sha? Goldwasser. The current proceedings include a short abstract of her talk. I would like to express my deep gratitude to the Program Committee m- bers, who volunteered their expertise and hard work over several months, as well as to the external reviewers. Special thanks to Shai Halevi for providing and maintaining the Web review system used for paper submission, reviewing, and ?nal-version preparation. Finally, I would like to thank Burt Kaliski and Ari Juels of RSA Laboratories, as well as the RSA conference team, especially Bree LaBollita, for their assistance throughout the process.
