“A cryptographic system should be secure even if everything about the system, except the key, is public knowledge.”

Auguste Kerckhoffs

“Random numbers should not be generated with a method chosen at random.” — Donald Knuth

HistoCrypt addresses all aspects of historical cryptology/cryptography including work in closely related disciplines (such as history, history of ideas, computer science, AI, (computational) linguistics, or image processing) that is sufficiently formalized or applied, with relevance to historical ciphertexts and codes.

We welcome everybody interested in the field of historical cryptology (classical cryptography and cryptanalysis) to participate in the event.

We invite submissions to HistoCrypt, either short or long paper, for presentation at the conference, which will be evaluated by a program committee.

The conference’s subjects include, but are not limited to:

the use of cryptography in military, diplomacy, business, and other areas
analysis of historical ciphers with the help of modern computerized methods
unsolved historical cryptograms
the Enigma and other encryption machines
the history of modern (computer-based) cryptography
special linguistic aspects of cryptology
the influence of cryptography on the course of history
teaching and promoting cryptology in schools, universities, and the public

Participation in the conference is mandatory for at least one author of each accepted paper.

Submissions from those who are new to the field, particularly students, are very welcome.

We cordially welcome you to Amsterdam!
