JP in da Kyiv, and crypto R&D internship pre-announcement

In the pandemic restrictions times, meeting offline is a luxury, especially given that you adore hardcore πŸ˜·β†”οΈπŸ˜· discussions on cryptography, ZKP/ZkSNARKs, or post-quantum computing. We had one just recently and it inspired us for more.

Last week we hosted in Kyiv, Ukraine a legendary cryptographer, researcher, and Cossack Labs’ business partner Jean-Philippe (JP) Aumasson. He stands behind SipHash, BLAKE2/3 hash functions as their co-designer, and behind several modern books on cryptography as their author.

For this long-awaited visit we were ready to kill the fatted calf and party hard. 😊 And we had it all up to eleven during the special crypto drinks & talks event.

Yay, that was awesome! A cosy venue in downtown Kyiv, relaxed summer mood, and exchange of experiences & great ideas with JP and the Ukrainian cryptography community people. We can talk about cryptography audits, root key ceremonies, searchable encryption, end-to-end encryption, and one-end encryption for ages! If you do too, join us next time without hesitation.

The next day, Cossack Labs team had more of its guilty crypto pleasure with a πŸ’ͺ special workshop on crypto attacks/defenses and PQC, designed by JP and Philipp Jovanovic (check it out).

πŸ’‘ And since we stand for the concept of giving knowledge back to the community and recently finished the first cycle of our crypto R&D internship, it is more than possible that we have several spots for new internsπŸŽ“ in the autumn.

Check for updates if you enjoy the same cryptographic wave.
