💥 Summer school-conference "Cryptography and information security" (July 9-27, 2020)! Applications are open until June 30. 22 Jun 2020

The summer school-conference "Cryptography and information security" is a traditional event held at NSU every year. The organizers are the Cryptographic center (Novosibirsk), the cryptography laboratory JetBrains Research, the international mathematical Center in Akademgorodok, the organizers of the international Olympiad NSUCRYPTO, the Faculty of information technology and the faculty of Mechanics and mathematics of NSU.

Dates: July 9-27, 2020.

Venue: remote format.

Students, school leavers, and 11th grade students are invited to participate in the school conference.

About 15 teachers will work with the participants for three weeks. You will find lectures, team and individual work in projects related to solving research problems in the field of cryptography and information security, sports classes. One of the most important events of the school-conference is a round table on modern problems of cryptography. The project topics are related to various issues of modern cryptography and information security: from the development of modern methods of cryptanalysis, construction of ciphers, quantum cryptography to the creation of open-source analytical intelligence systems. In 2020, as part of the summer school-conference, teachers from Russia, Europe and the United States, including authors of international standards in the field of cryptography, will work with participants. Part of the school-conference will be held in English.

Participation in the school is free of charge. The number of seats is limited. According to the results of the reporting conference-competition, the winners are awarded diplomas, and the participants are issued a certificate. The winning students are awarded a scholarship from JetBrains when they provide an original certificate from the University.

Applications for participation are accepted until June 30, inclusive.

The first workshop for students from the Math Center will be held from July 13 to 17 and will continue in August. Registration is until June 30. 22 Jun 2020

We invite students to take part in research!
And we draw your attention to the projects on cryptography and information security-number 19, 20, 21. Participation in these projects is perfectly combined with the Summer school on cryptography and information security! To do this, register for both events (school and workshop).

At the invitation of the Cryptographic Center, associate Professor of the Department of computer security of TSU, Ph. D., main developer of the cloud cybersecurity platform in Bi.Zone - Denis Kolegov and developer of security analysis services of Bizon LLC Anton Nikolaev will give a course of lectures "Fundamentals of security analysis of web applications" 7 May 2020


Every year on may 5, the Cryptographic service of Russia celebrates its professional holiday — the day of the cryptographer. 6 May 2020

Center employee Alexander Kutsenko took part in the scientific and technical conference "Information Security" on the basis of the Military Innovation Technopolis "Era" (Anapa, Krasnodar Krai) 6 Apr 2020

Polina Sazonova, an employee of the Center, made an invited presentation at the "Digital Standup blockchain" meeting at the Gazprom Neft Innovation House 16 Mar 2020

Many companies are actively interested in practical applications of blockchain technologies and scientific results in this area. At the meeting on February 27, held at the Gazprom Neft Innovation House (Saint Petersburg), Polina Sazonova was an invited speaker from Novosibirsk. She presented the report "distributed registry Technologies as the basis of the Russian economy". The meeting discussed the results in the field of blockchain technologies and their implementation with the participation of representatives of the Russian Post, Sberbank, Sibintek, Norilsk Nickel, Innopolis University and other organizations. At the round table organized after the presentations, participants discussed the prospects for the development of blockchain technology and existing barriers to its application.

Employees of the Cryptographic Center-Alexander Kutsenko and Alexey Oblaukhov- have passed scientific training at the University of Bergen (Norway) 6 Mar 2020

From February 3 to March 1, 2020, Alexander Kutsenko and Alexey Oblaukhov trained at the Selmer Center in Secure Communication research center Of the University of Bergen (Norway). During this time, joint research was carried out, and three times spoke at the laboratory's seminar:

13.02.2020-A. Kutsenko, "Self-dual bent functions: characterization and metric properties". Known properties of self-dual bent functions are considered. The obtained metric properties are described: the minimum Hamming distance between self-dual bent functions, and the spectrum of Hamming distances between functions from the Mayoran-Macfarland class. The metric regularity is proved and the metric complement of the set of self-dual bent functions is found.

20.02.2020-A. Kutsenko, "The group of automorphisms of the set of self-dual bent functions". The results obtained for isometric mappings of a set of self-dual benp functions are presented. It is proved that the automorphism groups of sets of self-dual and anti-self-dual bent functions coincide. The group of automorphisms of the set of self-dual bent functions is fully described.

27.02.2020 - A. Oblaukhov, "Metric regularity and metric complements in the Boolean cube". We present the results obtained that affect the properties of metric additions of subsets of a Boolean cube. A General view of the metric complement of a linear subspace of a Boolean cube is found. A lower estimate for the power of the maximum metrically regular set is obtained. The metric regularity of the reed-Maller codes RM(k, m) is proved for the case k>=m−3.
