Helena Handschuh, Stefan Lucks, Bart Preneel, and Phillip Rogaway. 09031 Executive Summary – Symmetric Cryptography. In Symmetric Cryptography. Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings, Volume 9031, pp. 1-3, Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik (2009)


Research in Symmetric Cryptography is quickly evolving. The seminar was the second of its kind, the first one took place in 2007. We observe a steadily increasing interest in Symmetric Cryptography, as well as a growing practical demand for symmetric algorithms and protocols. The seminar was very successful in discussing recent results and sharing new ideas. Furthermore, it inspired the participants to consider how Symmetric Cryptography has evolved in the past, and how they would like it to evolve in the future.
