Call for Papers

Workshop on Formal and Computational Cryptography (FCC 2006)
July 9 2006, Venice, Italy
co-located with ICALP 2006


Background, aim and scope

Cryptographic protocols are small distributed programs that add security 
services, like confidentiality or authentication, to network 
communication. Since the 1980s, two approaches have been developed for 
analyzing security protocols. One of the approaches relies on a 
computational model that considers issues of complexity and probability. 
The other approach relies on a symbolic model of protocol executions in 
which cryptographic primitives are black boxes.

The workshop focuses on the relation between the symbolic (Dolev-Yao) 
model and the computational (complexity-theoretic) model. Recent results 
have shown that in some cases the symbolic analysis is sound with 
respect to the computational model. A more direct approach which is also 
investigated considers symbolic proofs in the computational model. 
Research that proposes formal models sound for quantum security 
protocols are also relevant. The workshop seeks results in any of these 

FCC'06 will be held in Venice, Italy on July 9th, bridging the CSFW and 
the ICALP conferences. We invite submissions that present original 
results on the topics of the workshop. We also encourage submissions 
that describe work in progress or that further publicise interesting 
results published elsewhere. The main goal of the workshop is to 
stimulate discussions and new collaborations.

Submission Instructions

The authors should submit a 3 page extended abstract that will be 
peer-reviewed by our program committee. The workshop does not have 
formal proceedings, but informal proceedings of the workshop will appear 
as an INRIA research report. Workshop registration is open.

Detailed submission instructions will be available at the website soon.
