Scytl cryptographic security takes stage at the Nordic Conference on Secure IT Systems

Nov 15, 2017

Scytl’s recent paper entitled “Proof of a shuffle for lattice-based cryptography” was presented at NordSec2017, the 22nd Nordic Conference on Secure IT Systems held in Tartu, Estonia, on November 8-10, 2017. This security paper, co-produced by Núria Costa — cryptography researcher at Scytl — and the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, presents the first verifiable mixing protocol, used for decrypting online votes, which can prevent quantum computers to break current encryption schemes and thus ensure long-term voter privacy and vote secrecy in online voting. To date, the most important threat in traditional cryptography is the arrival of quantum computers, a ground-breaking computing system that would be much more powerful and could solve problems that are intractable for conventional computers.
