From June 6 to June 8, 2016 in Yaroslavl there will pass the fifth international symposium "Current trends in cryptography" of CTCrypt 2016.

The subject of a symposium includes questions of synthesis and the analysis of cryptographic algorithms and protocols, researches of their effective implementations, and also development of mathematical questions of cryptography.

Extremely interesting special topic of a symposium is planned: "Future of asymmetric cryptography". Now widely used asymmetric algorithms are under potential threat not only from quantum computers which can be created in visible (or vast?) future, but also from development of new approaches to a solution of a problem of discrete logarithming. For example, in the latest work of Igor Semayev (university of Bergen) who will act as the invited speaker is shown that a number of curves from the American FIPS 186-4 standard are theoretically non-persistent.

Reports on a symposium are accepted till March 7, 2016 through the page of submission of reports, the notification on inclusion in the program of a symposium after reviewing till April 25, 2016.
