Presidency University, Bangalore, organised a National Workshop on Cryptology 2019 in association with Cryptology Research Society of India.

Mathematics and Computer Science have merged to form Cryptology and information security. Elliptic curve cryptography and RSA Algorithm will lead information security in future with quantum computing in the forefront.

This was stated by Padmashree R. Balasubramanian, President, Cryptology Societyof India (CRSI) and Senior Professor, Institute of Mathematical Sciences, Chennai. He was speaking at Presidency University, Bangalore, on the occasion of inauguration of National Workshop on Cryptology 2019 which the university has organized in association with Cryptology Research Society of India.

Continuing his speech, S S Bhatnagar awardee, Balasubramanian said, "Public Key Cryptography provides message encryption, digital signature, data compression andemail compatibility. In Public Key Cryptography, the intruder knows how the coding is done, but it is impossible to decode it."

"There are several centers in India wherein active Cryptology research is being done. To bring together all researchers, the CRSI organizes annualWorkshops and an International Conference every year," he added.

The 3 day workshop will be addressed by other keynote speakers, including Sanjay Sahay, DG & I G of Police, Government of Karnataka and P. M. Heblikar, Former Special Secretary, Government of India.  

The workshop will have several sessions on topics such as Elliptic Curve Cryptography, IOT Security, Crystoanalysis of Block Cyphers, Visual Cryptography, Blockchain and CyberAttacks. There are several hands-on experience sessions. Over 60 participants from different parts of the country are attending the conference.
