RUSCRYPTO is an annual scientific and practical conference dedicated to topical issues of cryptography and information security. It is a platform for communication between specialists in the field of cryptography and information security. The event is annually attended by developers and their potential clients, scientists and officials, specialists from commercial and government agencies. RusCrypto is theory and practice, presentations of new technologies and exchange of opinions.Associate Professor of NSU, employee of the Cryptographic Center, N.N.Tokareva was invited to the RUSCRIPTO conference as an expert to organize and conduct a round table dedicated to the popularization of cryptography and involvement in the profession. The round table included presentations by representatives of MSU, MEPhI, SPbPU, FUMO IB and other organizations. - The report of the Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Digital Development, Communications and Mass Communications of the Russian Federation A.M.Shoitov on the creation of the National Technological Center for Digital Cryptography (STC CC) aroused particular interest in RUSCRIPTO. The new structure will allow for public-private cooperation to create means of cryptographic protection of information. This is a very important decision. In general, the conference program was very rich and interesting, I thank the organizers for the brilliantly conducted event, - N.N.Tokareva shares her impressions.
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, www.nsucrypto.nsu.ru.

NSUCRYPTO is included in the list of international Olympiads, the number of prize-winning students of which affects the university's entry into the RAEX-100 rating of the best universities in Russia. The winners of the Olympiad have the right to study free of charge according to the quota of the Russian Federation in the English-speaking graduate schools of the NSU. In 2022, the Olympiad was held from October 16 to 24. 623 people from 36 countries took part in it. 16 tasks of varying complexity were offered to the participants. Among them are tasks about quantum computing in cryptography, about generating keys for working with electronic money, about designing ciphers and new cryptographic protocols, about analyzing modern hash functions and, of course, fun tasks for ingenuity. For example, in one of them it was necessary to recall the cipher "Polybius square" (the letter "C" is encoded as 13, the letter "R" as 42, etc.) and build a chain of letter code designations, moving sequentially across the square, starting from the selected cell and separating the letters with dots: 21.42.
