Foreword

Everything Secret, Complete Insecurity?

Are today's policies matching modern cryptography and operational requirements?

 
For the first time AFCEA Europe will organise a one-day event on cryptography, gathering experts from NATO, the EU institutions, national authorities, industry and academia. We will discuss the role of cryptography today and how it will change in the future. The event will be held in partnership with secunet and Secusmart and in cooperation with leading research and development agencies and industrial technology leaders.
 
The workshop will provide the latest information on challenges and basic developments in the fields of: 
Up-to-date encryption technologies 
Post-quantum encryption
 
In addition, it will allow for a critical review of existing policies, architectures, procedures and methods in the implementation and employment of encryption tools in the public domain (military, intelligence, law enforcement). The workshop aims to offer insights and recommendations for procedural and organisational improvements and could assist ongoing activities with regard to the definition of standards for improved transnational interoperability. 
 
Finally, the workshop will touch on a more realistic perception of so-called new disruptive technologies and will highlight necessary changes with regard to policies.
