Designing secure protocols for complex and unpredictable multi-user
environments like the Internet is a non-trivial task. Challenges range
from developing appropriate notions of security, to the design and
analysis of efficient multi-party cryptographic protocols that satisfy
these notions, to the secure implementation of these protocols.
Recent years have seen considerable advancements in research towards
design of secure multi-party protocols. These include dealing with the
security implications of protocol composition, coming up with
protocols with improved efficiency, and communication complexity and
designing protocols for a variety of tasks such as electronic voting,
auctions, private information retrieval, e-commerce, secure unicasting
This workshop is aimed at bringing together experts on topics related
to the design of cryptographic multi-party protocols to present their
on-going work, survey previous work and discuss future research
directions -- with strong emphasis on the design, analysis, and
implementation of protocols that maintain their security in complex
adversarial environments and in particular in the Internet.
