Permutation-based Crypto 2023

April 23, 2023 - Lyon, France
co-located with EUROCRYPT 2023


In the last decade, it has become clear that permutation-based cryptography is highly competitive in terms of performance and resource usage when compared to classical block ciphers and their modes. The goal of the Permutation-Based Crypto (PBC) workshop is to bring together academics and industry experts to discuss recent advances in this research area, as well as provide an introduction to anyone interested in discovering more about this field.

Co-located with Eurocrypt 2023 in Lyon, France, the PBC workshop will feature invited talks and contributed talks. The latter will be selected by the steering committee from the received proposals.

Previous Edition

The University of Milan and Radboud University previously organized the first edition of this workshop in 2018.

Abstract submission

Talks can be about recent unpublished results, works in progress as well as results recently published in other venues. Submissions are welcome on all technical aspects of permutation-based cryptography including, but not limited to:

  • cryptanalysis
  • modes
  • applications and protocols
  • implementations
  • side-channel and fault attacks
Submissions must include the name of the speaker, a title and an extended abstract (up to 2 pages). Contributors can send their proposal to . Please find here the call for contributions in PDF.
