|The First 10 Years of Advanced Encryption|
Vincent Rijmen (Leuven, Graz)
16 février 2010
About 10 years ago, we designed the block cipher Rijndael in response to NIST’s announcement of their initiative to select a new encryption standard (the AES). In 2000, NIST selected Rijndael to become the AES. In this talk, I survey the increasing acceptance and adoption of the AES in various applications. I also talk about situations were it proves difficult to convince people to start using AES. Finally I illustrate the influence of the AES on design philosophies being used to design new cryptographic primitives. This is done by looking at the contenders in NIST’s SHA-3 competition, which is in full progress.
