Abstract / Description of output

The workshop “Real-Life Cryptographic Protocols and Standardization” is intended to gather the experiences of the designers and implementers of cryptographic protocols that are deployed in real-life systems. Designing and implementing real-life systems puts forth many challenges – not only technical issues regarding the use of hardware and software, but also usability, manageability, interoperability and timing to deploy the system. Designing to fulfill all these restrictions while not degrading security frequently requires tremendous efforts. The resulting cryptographic protocols may not always be interesting at the theoretical cryptography level, but the documentation of the challenges they face and the ways such challenges were met is important to be shared with the community. Standardization also promotes the use of cryptographic protocols where the best practices from these experiences are condensed in a reusable way.
