Kryptonite (a joint venture of X Holding and Rostec State Corporation) will host the international Security of the Future: Cryptography 2021 conference, which will be held on April 20th, 2020. Along with a private meeting of international specialists in cryptography and cybersecurity (held April 21-24), the conference forms a “cryptography week” in Russia, which will welcome experts from around the world.
The Security of the Future: Cryptography 2021 conference will bring together representatives of leading countries in world cryptography and information security: from Russia, the UK, the USA, Germany, France, Japan, China, South Korea, etc. The delegations will include cryptographers, representatives of government agencies in the field of communications and technology, as well as employees of large technology brands (including Microsoft, IBM and other corporations).
“Three out of four acting national cryptography standards in Russia have already been adopted at the international level, and we expect that the rest will be adopted as part of the work of the 27th subcommittee. The quality of our cryptographic standards is widely recognized in the world and confirms our leadership in this direction”, said Vasily Shishkin, the head of the cryptography laboratory at the Kryptonit Research and Production Company.
Representatives of Kryptonite will present the conference program to the SC 27 ISO organizing committee at a meeting of the committee working groups in Paris, which will be held from 14th to 18th of October. After that, a city in Russia that will host a “cryptography week” in April 2020 will be selected.
