More than 1,100 students, professionals and schoolchildren from 44 countries attended NSUCRYPTO-2023 7 Nov 2023

A large international event, the Non-Stop University Cryptography Olympiad CRYPTO, was successfully held from 15 to 23 October with the active participation of the NSU Cryptographic Centre.

- This year's Olympiad was the tenth anniversary, and the most public one. For both the rounds, we recorded more than 1100 registrations from 44 countries. This is a certain success. In my opinion, a significant role was played by the attraction of new coorganisers and partners who are ready to actively support and promote the event, invite students and offer interesting tasks from the industry," commented Natalia Tokareva, Chair of the Olympiad Programme Committee, Associate Professor at NSU.

The participants were offered 14 different tasks. Their topics included postquantum cryptography, hash functions, calculators, creation of new ciphers and analysis of existing ones, prime numbers, cryptographic protocols and digital signatures.

The Non-Stop University CRYPTO Olympiad is the only international cryptography Olympiad. It unites both school and university students and professionals from all over the world. Everyone can take part in the Olympiad, independently of geographical location. The official language of the Olympiad is English. The aim of the Olympiad is to attract young researchers to the solution of modern cryptography questions.

The organizers and partners of the Olympiad are the Cryptographic Centre (Novosibirsk), Novosibirsk State University, International Mathematical Centre in Akademgorodok, North-West Centre for Mathematical Research named after Sofia Kovalevskaya, University of Leuven (Belgium), Southern Federal University, Belarusian State University, Tomsk State University, Kryptonite, Demlabs and Aktiv companies.

The official results of the Olympiad will be announced in December 2023.

Low-resource cryptography and modern cryptanalysis: NSU employees were speakers at the International Conference SIBECRYPT-2023 7 Nov 2023

The 22nd International Conference SIBECRYPT "Siberian Scientific School-Seminar "Computer Security and Cryptography" named after G.P. Agibalov was held from 4 to 9 September in Barnaul.

The conference gathered about 50 cryptography and information security specialists from Moscow, Novosibirsk, Tomsk, Irkutsk, Taganrog, Rostov-on-Don, Kaliningrad, as well as India and Pakistan.

The delegation from Novosibirsk included 10 professors and students from Novosibirsk State University, who presented sectional and plenary reports in the fields of postquantum cryptography and cryptographic discrete functions.

It should be noted that Denis Bykov, a 2nd year MSc student of NSU, a researcher of the Mathematical Centre in Akademgorodok, became the winner of the competition of young people's reports of the conference.

SIBECRYPT is one of the leading conferences on cryptography and computer security in Russia, held annually in different Siberian cities. Its aim is to discuss fundamental mathematical problems of cryptography and information protection in computer systems and networks, exchange of scientific results on development of theoretical foundations and creation of hardware and software tools for computer security.

This year the conference was held in Barnaul with the support of the International Mathematical Centre in Akademgorodok, Tomsk State University, North-West Centre for Mathematical Research named after Sofia Kovalevskaya. Sofia Kovalevskaya Centre for M

Post-quantum cryptosystems, data leakage protection methods and privacy issues were explored by participants of the Summer School on Cryptography (continued) 7 Nov 2023

— High scientific level and unique lecturers. This is what differentiates our summer school and arouses great interest in it from students from all over the country. There are no analogues of such a cryptographic school in Russia. We thank our coorganiser, Baltic Federal University, and personally Ekaterina Malygina, Associate Professor at BFU, for the excellent organisation, warm welcome and amazing atmosphere," - notes Natalia Tokareva, Head of the Summer School, Associate Professor at NSU.

The Summer School-Conference was supported by the Cryptographic Centre (Novosibirsk), the International Mathematical Centre in Akademgorodok and the Kovalevskaya North-West Centre for Mathematical Research. S. Kovalevskaya.

The summer school-conference with international participation was successfully held in Kaliningrad. "Cryptography and Information Security" is a traditional event organised by the Cryptographic Centre (Novosibirsk), the International Mathematical Centre in Akademgorodok and the organisers of the NSUCRYPTO International Olympiad. This year the Summer School was organised with the Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University.

80 students and teachers conducted scientific research in the field of cryptography. In total 20 lectures were given by leading specialists from Moscow, Taganrog, Irkutsk, Kaliningrad, Novosibirsk, a round table was organised, and most importantly, scientific research was conducted under the guidance of experienced cryptographers. A collection of theses was published as a result of the summer school.

Летняя школа «Криптография и информационная безопасность» – традиционное мероприятие, организуемое Новосибирским государственным университетом и Международным математическим центром. В этом году Летняя школа организуется в сотрудничестве с Балтийским федеральным университетом им. И.Канта и на его базе (Калининград). Всего на школу было подано 115 заявок. В итоге 68 студентов из Новосибирска, Калининграда, Томска, Москвы, Санкт-Петербурга, Таганрога, Екатеринбурга, Иннополиса, Хабаровска и других городов приехали на школу. Есть и международные участники – из Киргизии, Казахстана, Вьетнама.

— В этом году Летняя школа радует как географией, так и разнообразием лекций и научных проектов. Всем желаем успешной работы и научных свершений, — прокомментировала со-руководитель Летней школы, доцент БФУ Екатерина Малыгина.

В течение почти двух недель, с 7 по 17 августа, со студентами будут работать 17 преподавателей. Участников школы ждут лекции и командная работа в проектах, связанная с решением учебных и исследовательских задач в области криптографии и информационной безопасности. Одно из важнейших событий школы – круглый стол по современным проблемам криптографии. Студентов также ждут прогулки по Калининграду, необычные спортивные занятия, дружеский матч и главное событие школы – итоговая конференция по результатам работы с публикацией тезисов.

— Особое внимание школы в этом году будет уделено постквантовой криптографии. В школе принимают участие ведущие разработчики РФ в данной области, а именно – команды, непосредственно участвующие в создании стандартов в этой области. То, что нам удалось их привлечь – большой успех, — отметила руководитель Летней школы, доцент Механико-математического факультета НГУ Наталья Токарева.

Летняя школа-конференция проводится Криптографическим центром НГУ при поддержке Международного математического центра в Академгородке и Северо-Западного центра математических исследований им. С. Ковалевской.
