Workshop on Encrypted Computing and Applied Homomorphic Cryptography (WAHC) https://www.dcsec.uni-hannover.de/wahc17.html The workshop will be held after Financial Crypto (FC) in Malta on April 7th. The workshop focuses on the implementation and application of Homomorphic Encryption (HE), Secure Multi-Party Computation (SMC), cryptographic obfuscation, SGX, differential privacy and related encrypted computing technologies in both software and hardware. The cloud hype and recent disclosures show there is demand for secure and practical computing technologies. The workshop addresses the challenge to safely outsource data processing onto remote computing resources by protecting programs and data even during processing. This allows users to confidently outsource computation over confidential information independently from the trustworthiness or the security level of the remote delegate. The technologies and techniques discussed in this workshop are key to extend the range of applications that can be securely and practically outsourced. The goal of the workshop is to bring together researchers, practitioners, government and industry to present, discuss and share the latest progress in the field relevant to real-world problems with practical approaches and solutions. Topics include (but are not limited to) - Software architectures for encrypted applications - Platform and system integration for encrypted applications - Algorithmic primitives for encrypted applications - Hybrid (partly encrypted) applications - Hardware implementations of encrypted computing - Implementation of homomorphic encryption schemes - Practical performance evaluations of homomorphic encryption schemes - Practical aspects of functional encryption - Privacy-preserving set operations - Secure information sharing - Circuit transformation of algorithms - Obfuscation techniques - Encrypted search schemes - Encrypted e-payment solutions - Encrypted financial transactions - Encrypted applications in bio-informatics Schedule: Submission Deadline: Dec. 31, 2016 Acceptance Notice: Feb. 15, 2017 Camera Ready Due: Mar. 1, 2017 Workshop: Apr. 7, 2017 Submission instructions can be found on the workshop website. Please contact the organizers with any questions, and please forward this on to anyone who you feel would be interested in participating.
