Designing more efficient and secure authenticated encryption schemes is in the focus of the cryptographic community. The first speaker will discuss methods to enhance the handling of associated data in sponge-based schemes. The second speaker will present cryptanalysis of a scheme submitted to the CAESAR competition.
