Joan Daemen – Permutation-based cryptography
In his lecture, Joan Daemen talked about a “counter-movement they started to clean up symmetric cryptography”. Their effort is to replace block ciphers (e.g. AES) with cryptographic permutations and so-called deck functions as central primitives. Permutation-based cryptography is, at the same, time simpler and more efficient than old-school block cipher based crypto.
