SKEW 2011
16 – 17 February 2011
Lyngby, Denmark
ECRYPT Workshop on Symmetric Encryption
Symmetric Key Encryption Workshop 2011


Welcome to the Symmetric Key Encryption Workshop (SKEW) 2011.

SKEW 2011 was held in Lyngby, Denmark, a small town close to the city of Copenhagen. Copenhagen is a wonderful, intimate, and at the same time international city that has great things to offer its visitors.

After an interruption of three years, SKEW 2011 was the sixth in a series of ECRYPT workshops dedicated to symmetric-key encryption techniques. Continuing in the tradition of the previous SASC/SKEW workshops, SKEW 2011 provided a forum for discussing the most recent developments in the field of stream ciphers. However, as opposed to earlier editions, this year's workshop covers other aspects of symmetric-key encryption as well, ranging from new theoretical insights in block cipher cryptanalysis, to the design, implementation and deployment of encryption algorithms for/in severely constrained environments.

SKEW 2011 was organized by the crypto group at DTU Mathematics and sponsored by ECRYPT II.

SKEW was co-located with FSE 2011, which took place 14 - 16 February 2011.
