SASC 2006 - Stream Ciphers Revisited

Special Workshop hosted by the ECRYPT Network of Excellence
Leuven, Belgium, February 2-3, 2006

Welcome to the homepage of the SASC 2006 workshop. The goal of the SASC 2006 workshop is to gather researchers working in the area of stream cipher analysis and design.

The workshop is an organisation of ECRYPT, the European Network of Excellence in Cryptography. The workshop is an activity of ECRYPT's STVL - Symmetric Techniques Virtual Lab. In particular, the workshop is focused on researchers participating in ECRYPT's eSTREAM project, in which 34 new stream cipher proposals are currently evaluated with respect to their security and performance.

The main goal of this workshop is to give participants the opportunity to give talks, present their research and discuss various aspects of the eSTREAM project.

A limited number of stipends will be available for non-ECRYPT students. Please let us know if you are interested before January 13th, by sending a mail to with as subject "Stipend for SASC 2006". We will let you know as soon as a decision on your stipend request has been taken. Note that at most two stipends will be given per institution.
