Workshop on Factoring Large Numbers, Discrete Logarithms and Cryptanalytical Hardware

On 22 and 23 April 2008 a workshop on factoring large numbers with NFS and on DL-problems took place at the Institute fuer Experimentelle Mathematik in Essen. The workshop was dedicated to present recent results and exchange ideas in these topics concerning both theory, hard- and software aspects. Organiser was Prof. Dr. G. Frey.

As a member of the Institute fuer Experimentelle Mathematik I participated to the workshop. For me one of the most interesting talks was "Modified Number Field Sieve algorithms for oracle-assisted e-th root  extraction and static Diffie-Hellman problems" by E. Thomé.
