Authenticated encryption is the cryptographer's front-line defense against attackers, the protective shield applied to every network packet. But is this shield actually being used? Is it actually working? Is it doing what the users actually need? Are industry practitioners listening to researchers? Are researchers listening to industry practitioners?
Challenges in Authenticated Encryption (CHAE) includes a workshop and a forthcoming white paper, identifying critical ongoing problems whose solutions will need concerted community effort stretching years into the future.
CHAE is part of the EU Horizon 2020 ECRYPT-CSA project.
