International Course on Computer Security and Cryptography 2009

Last week we had the possibility to attend the 12th edition of the International Cosic Course. This course is biyearly organised by the Cosic research group from KULeuven and the topics handle on Computer Security and Cryptography. The event was sponsored by L-Sec and took place at the Arenberg Castle.

The course itself was very interesting, somewhat mathematical but still educational. You can find the various topics on the Cosic Course site.

The 4-day course began with an introduction into cryptography and PKI. After this introduction the mathematics could start! The second day was a deep dive in various security concepts. The third & fourth day handled on the implementations of these concepts.

The conference dinner at The Faculty Club on Thursday was a nice way to socialise with the presenters.
All in all it was a full-packed week with a lot to learn.
