The 14th Annual Workshop on Selected Areas in Cryptography

In cooperation with the International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR)

Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, August 16 & 17, 2007


The SAC workshop will be held in room G0103 of the SITE building at the University of Ottawa. The SITE Building is on the corner of King Edward Ave. and Mann Ave. (see the bottom of this map).  The Wednesday evening reception (18:30 - 20:00) will be just inside the main entrance (the revolving doors) of the SITE Building.


The workshop on Selected Areas in Cryptography (SAC) is an annual conference dedicated to specific themes in the area of cryptographic system design and analysis. Authors are encouraged to submit original papers related to the themes for the SAC 2007 workshop:

  1. Design and analysis of symmetric key cryptosystems
  2. Primitives for symmetric key cryptography, including block and stream ciphers, hash functions, and MAC algorithms
  3. Efficient implementations of symmetric and public key algorithms
  4. Innovative cryptographic defenses against malicious software
