In 2018, the NIST announced an initiative to standardize lightweight authenticated encryption schemes and hash functions in an open process with public evaluation.
The mission of the APLICA project is to contribute to the evaluation of the third-round candidates and the eventually standardized algorithms by analyzing their theoretical and practical security properties.
More concretely, APLICA will contribute to the development of new cryptanalytic techniques that can be applied to lightweight authenticated encryption algorithms and hash functions, and to the design and implementation of new countermeasures against side-channel attacks, in particular differential power analysis, that are suitable for resource-constrained IoT devices.
Candidates must hold a degree (or obtain a degree before September 2020) in symmetric cryptography or a closely related field.
Preference will be given to candidates with a strong publication record that includes at least one paper at an IACR-sponsored conference / workshop or one of the top-4 security conferences.
Experience in software development for embedded systems and / or side-channel attacks is a plus. Candidates with an interest to conduct research in one of the following areas are particularly encouraged to apply :
