IMPORTANT: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic in France, the workshop is canceled (or postponed). We are sorry for the inconvenience. More information to come.

Welcome to the website of the eighth Code-based Cryptography Workshop that will take place at Inria in Paris (France) on April 14, 2020. The goal of this one-day workshop is to bring together the community to discuss recent developments, as well as introduce the field to anyone interested in discovering more about this research area. The International Conference on Post-Quantum Cryptography (PQCrypto 2020) will start in Paris the next day.

Code-based Cryptography

Code-based cryptography is the area of research that focuses on the study of cryptosystems based on error-correcting codes, following the seminal work of McEliece and Niederreiter in the late 1970s – early 1980s. These systems have shown no vulnerabilities to quantum attackers and the relevant research branch is widely regarded as one of the most promising in the so-called area of Post-Quantum Cryptography. Current efforts in code-based cryptography are directed at producing fast, secure and efficient schemes. Research in this area has also been fostered by the recent NIST’s Post-Quantum Standardization call.
