A team of NSU students took first place at the 2022 International Cryptography Olympiad 16 Jan 2023

In the first round, students of the SUNC NSU Mikhail Baev and Egor Tens received diplomas of the third degree in the category "schoolchildren", their main rivals were schoolchildren from the UK and Singapore. NSU students were also awarded prizes in the first round in the "students" category. Konstantin Romanov (FIT NSU) received a diploma of the second degree, Viktor Panshin (MMF NSU) earned a diploma of the third degree. Students of the Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics of NSU Georgy Zhukov and Georgy Krivtsov received honorary diplomas in this category. In addition, the graduate student of the Faculty of Information Technologies of NSU Roman Lebedev will be awarded a diploma of the second degree in the category "professionals" in the first round. He managed to bypass the representatives of Germany, Belgium and Hungary.
And we note the outstanding result of the 2022 Olympiad for NSU – in the second round, a team of students of the Mechanics and Mathematics Faculty of NSU consisting of Alexander Bakharev, Rinchin Zapanov and Denis Bykov won a first degree diploma! They were able to beat their main rivals from Romania, Vietnam and Hungary, as well as strong teams from Moscow (MEPhI). Since 2017, Novosibirsk teams have not been able to overcome the competition.
In the first round, 37 participants from 10 countries will be awarded prizes and diplomas, in the second round — 27 teams from 9 countries. A detailed list of prize winners is published on the Olympiad website,
The Olympiad is organized by the Cryptographic Center (Novosibirsk), the International Mathematical Center in Akademgorodok, Novosibirsk State University, the University of Leuven (Belgium), Tomsk State University, Belarusian State University, the Northwestern Center for Mathematical Research named after Sofia Kovalevskaya and the Kryptonite Company.

The results of the Laurentian Competition of 2022 have been summed up 2 Oct 2022

The first place among the student theses at the 2022 Lavrentiev Competition was taken by the work "Estimates of the complexity of the implementation of quantum cryptanalysis of post-quantum cryptosystems" by Alexander Bakharev - a student of MMF, an employee of the Cryptographic Center. The work was prepared under the guidance of the teacher Alexander Vladimirovich Kutsenko. We sincerely congratulate Alexander and his supervisor on this victory! 🎈👍🏻

Students and teachers of NSU successfully made presentations at the SIBECRYPT-2022 International Conference "Cryptography and Computer Security" 18 Sep 2022

The 21st International Conference "Siberian Scientific School-Seminar "Computer Security and Cryptography" named after Gennady Petrovich Agibalov was held in Krasnoyarsk from September 5 to 10.
This year the conference was held on the basis of the Siberian State University of Science and Technology named after Academician M.F. Reshetnev with the support of the International Mathematical Center in Akademgorodok, Tomsk State University, the Northwest Center for Mathematical Research named after. Sofia Kovalevskaya. The organizers include the Institute of Cryptography, Communications and Informatics of the FSB Academy, the Academy of Cryptography of the Russian Federation, Moscow State University.
The delegation from Novosibirsk included 13 students and teachers of NSU, who are employees of the Mathematical Center in Akademgorodok. The members of the delegation presented 8 sectional reports on the properties of cryptographic discrete functions and new methods of analyzing cryptographic algorithms. In total, about 50 cryptography and information security specialists from Moscow, Novosibirsk, Tomsk, Krasnoyarsk, Barnaul, Irkutsk, Saratov, Rostov-on-Don took part in the conference.
Alexander Bakharev , an employee of the Mathematical Center in Akademgorodok, a 1st-year master's student of the MMF NSU, became the winner of the youth reports competition. His work "Development and comparison of quantum oracle models for hybrid attack on post–quantum cryptosystems based on lattices" is devoted to an extremely relevant direction today - post-quantum cryptography.

Students from all over Russia will be retrained in cryptography at NSU 9 Jul 2022

Novosibirsk Cryptographic Center has launched a large-scale professional retraining program "Cryptography and Information Security" at NSU. For 9 months, students from all over Russia and from abroad will take part in scientific and applied cryptographic developments under the leadership of a team of more than 25 specialists in science and industry. Lectures, workshops and seminars will cover a wide range of areas. At the end of the training, all participants of the program will receive state-issued diplomas.

— Scientific research in the field of cryptography is actively conducted abroad, but in Russia it is isolated due to the long closeness of the subject and the underdevelopment of the direction of civil cryptography. Thus, according to the "Infotex Training Center", every year several thousand graduates of the field of information security in Russian universities account for only a few dozen scientific publications, and dissertations in this field are extremely rare. And there are even fewer graduates who own such modern technologies as, for example, quantum cryptography – only 15-20 people a year. We consistently train graduates in the field of cryptography at NSU who have scientific results and publications in highly rated journals, — said the head of the retraining program Natalia Tokareva.

The first stage of training is Summer School, organized by the Novosibirsk Cryptographic Center, the International Mathematical Center in Akademgorodok, the organizing committee of the NSUCRYPTO Olympiad, as well as representatives of FIT and MMF NSU. Students from Novosibirsk, Tomsk, Moscow, Krasnoyarsk, Taganrog and Kaliningrad who have come to study are waiting for lectures, team and individual work in projects. More details here.
