The 21st G.P. Agibalova International Conference "Siberian Scientific School-Seminar on Computer Security and Cryptography" took place from September 5 to 10. 50 specialists in cryptography and information security from Moscow, Novosibirsk, Tomsk, Krasnoyarsk, Barnaul, Irkutsk, Saratov, and Rostov-on-Don participated in the Conference. The delegation from Novosibirsk included 13 NSU students and professors presenting 8 reports on the properties of cryptographic discrete functions and new methods for analyzing cryptographic algorithms. Alexander Bakharev, 1st-year MA student at the NSU Department of Mechanics and Mathematics and Researcher at the Mathematical Center in Akademgorodok, won the student reports competition. His work is devoted to post-quantum cryptography, an extremely relevant topic today.
Bakharev shared his impressions,
I would like to express my deep gratitude to the organizers of the Conference for the opportunity to get experience in public speaking and for the useful feedback to my work. Among the plenary lectures, I remember most of all Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences S. V. Smyshlyaev on ensuring the security of mass cryptographic tools and A. V. Cheremushkin, a member of the Academy of Cryptography of the Russian Federation. Among the section reports, talks by my colleagues on homomorphic calculations and cryptosystems were very interesting.
SIBECRYPT is one of the leading cryptography and computer security conferences in Russia. It is held annually in different Siberian cities. The purpose of the Conference is to discuss the fundamental mathematical problems in cryptography and information security in computer systems and networks, to exchange scientific results on the development of theoretical foundations and the creation of software and hardware for computer security. This year the conference was held at the Reshetnev Siberian State University of Science and Technology. It was supported by the International Mathematical Center in Akademgorodok, Tomsk State University, and the Kovalevskaya North-Western Center for Mathematical Research.
