Cryptography under the hood.

Welcome to follow Xiphera's webinar series!

Xiphera’s webinar series Cryptography under the hood is a new series covering the interesting and relevant topics of information security and cryptography. The webinar series covers for example topics such as post-quantum cryptography, homomorphic encryption, and resource-constrained security protocols, to name a few. Each webinar is planned to be held quarterly and is free of charge.

The Role of Elliptic Curve Cryptography in the Post-Quantum Era

June 8, 2022, at 15:00 CET

Welcome to join us in the next episode of Xiphera's webinar series 'Cryptography under the hood' on June 8, 2022!

Dr. Kimmo Järvinen, Xiphera's co-founder and CTO, talks about the importance of secure implementation of Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC). Although the world of cryptography is moving to Post-Quantum Cryptography (PQC), ECC still has a significant role to play also for years to come in hybrid systems that combine PQC with ECC.

Although ECC is already mature technology, its implementation is never a simple task and even small implementation mistakes can lead to major security problems, as has been seen even lately. This webinar discusses how to avoid pitfalls of ECC implementations and the role of ECC in future cryptosystems.

State of Play of Post Quantum Cryptography

March 9, 2022

Dr. Matti Tommiska, Xiphera's co-founder and CEO, reviews the current status in quantum computing, and specifically its impact on the currently used public-key cryptographic algorithms. NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) has advanced to the final stages of Round 3 in its PQC (Post Quantum Cryptography) competition, and the winning algorithms will form the foundation of future public-key cryptographic algorithms and protocols. Since the adoption and finalization of PQC algorithms and protocols will likely take years, the crypto agility of FPGAs has clear advantages over fixed-function silicon.

Advantages of FPGA-based Cryptography

November 16, 2021

Dr. Kimmo Järvinen, Xiphera's co-founder and CTO, talks about the benefits of hardware and FPGAs in particular for implementing cryptography. Hardware based cryptography allows full isolation of security-critical cryptographic computations and keys from the rest of the system and helps to solve many of the pitfalls of software-only systems. Reprogrammability of FPGAs then again helps to overcome many of the downsides of the rigidity of application-specific hardware.
