Mathematical trapdoors in block ciphers: evaluation and attack exploitation
Date: 21-25 Settembre 2015
Department of Mathematics,
Univ. of Trento, Trento (ITALY).
CryptoLabTN, Laboratorio di Matematica industriale e Crittografia
Lecturer: Prof. PHD M. Sala (Trento).
Assistant Lecturer: PHD Marco Calderini.
In this full-immersion course we will show how mathematical trapdoors can be embedded
in the design of a block cipher. We will show how the cipher be can evaluated
to ensure that it is safe from these trapdoors. We will also show how an
attacker can take advantage of the (knowledge of the) trapdoor, obtaining a complete break
of the cipher in a way totally unexpected by the legitimate users.
The course cost is 1000 euros and the maximum number of partecipants is $6$.
Deadline for applying: 1 September 2015.
