Speaker: Ankan Pal (University of L’Aquila)

Title: “Mathematics of Post-Quantum Cryptography”
Short abstract: “Since the last decade, the Post-Quantum (PQ) Cryptography has drawn attention of researchers due to its resistance against the upcoming quantum threats. As the security of many classical and popular cryptosystems are based on the intractability of the underlying hard mathematical problems, in a permissible amount of time, it is of worth interest to investigate the difficulty of solution of those problems in classical era versus quantum era. This talk also aims to explore distinguished mathematical properties which support cryptographic primitives as candidate post-quantum cryptosystems, for example Isogeny-Based Elliptic Curve Cryptography, Lattice-Based Cryptography. Lastly, this talk intend to address some methods from Algebraic Geometry to attack ECDLP.”
