1st FutureTPM Workshop on Quantum-Resistant Crypto Algorithms

19th October 2018  ||  08:00 - 17:00 WEST (UTC +1)  ||  Lisbon, Portugal  ||  Venue: Holiday Inn Lisboa

You are all invited to join the 1st FutureTPM Workshop on Quantum-Resistant (QR) Crypto Algorithms suitable for inclusion in Trusted Platform Modules (TPM). The workshop will take place on the 19th of October 2018 in the Holiday Inn Lisboa in Lisbon, Portugal, hosted by INESC-ID.

This workshop is supported by the European Union H2020 project FutureTPM (Future Proofing the Connected World: A Quantum-Resistant Trusted Platform Module) and is aimed at presenting a first set of preliminary results in researching QR cryptographic algorithms suitable for inclusion in a TPM. A TPM is a security anchor, also known as root-of-trust, which is commonly used in domains with a strong requirement for security, privacy and trust, such as finance and banking (secure mobile payment), wearables (activity tracking) and device management.

The FutureTPM is a 36-month project, started on the 1st of January 2018, which receives funding from the EU under grant agreement number 779391. The project is coordinated by the Austrian company TECHNIKON, under the technical lead of the University of Surrey in the UK. FutureTPM is mainly targeted at industries threatened by the advent of quantum computing capabilities, which might undermine the security of current crypto-algorithms. Therefore, there is an increasing need for designing a new set of quantum-resistant algorithms aimed at protecting the security of interconnected systems.

This one-day workshop will bring together diverse players in the quantum-safe cryptography community, with the goal of facilitating knowledge exchange and collaboration to prepare for the advent of the quantum era. The workshop will foster discussions on the definition, design and technical requirements of the set of FutureTPM industry-driven use cases, by engaging key industrial players and focus groups active in cyber-physical systems security, standardization bodies and academic partners show-casing the FutureTPM platform.

There is no registration fee for workshop participants. As space is limited, please send your confirmation of attendance via email at coordination@futuretpm.eu by September 14th, 2018. Please feel free to contact us if you require any additional information.
