cryptography aims at achieving security in the presence of
computationally unbounded adversaries. Research on
information-theoretic cryptography includes in particular:
The design and implementation of cryptographic protocols
and primitives with unconditional security guarantees.
The usage of information-theoretic tools and techniques
in achieving other forms of security, including security against
computationally-bounded and quantum attackers.
ITC is a venue dedicated to serving two fundamental goals:
To present and disseminate research advances on all
aspects of information-theoretic security.
To foster the creation of a community bringing together researchers
from several areas, including coding theory, information theory
(classical and quantum), theory of computation, privacy, and
Areas of interest include, but are not restricted to:
Secure multi-party computation
Information theoretic proof systems
Idealized models (e.g.,ideal channels, random oracle, generic group model)
Bounded storage models
Authentication codes and non-malleable codes
Randomness extraction and privacy amplification
Private information retrieval and locally decodable codes
Quantum information processing
Information-theoretic foundations of physical-layer security
Moreover, the conference also encourages the submission of results from other fields of mathematics that are motivated by information-theoretic security.
ITC replaces the International Conference on Information Theoretic Security (ICITS)
, which was dedicated to the same topic and ran 2005-2017. ITC can be seen as a reboot of ICITS with a new name, a new steering committee and a renewed excitement.
