The Real World Cryptography Workshop aims to bring together cryptography researchers with developers implementing cryptography in real-world systems. The main goal of the workshop is to strengthen the dialogue between these two groups. Topics covered will focus on uses of cryptography in real-world environments such as the Internet, the cloud, and embedded devices.
