Welcome to Signcryption (ISO 29150)
an international standard for data protection
was invented in 1996. Details of the newly discovered public key
cryptographic technology were first disclosed to the public at the CRYPTO'97 conference held in Santa Barbara.
Since then, I have witnessed a steadily increasing amount of interest in the technology from both
researchers and practitioners alike. Each year, extensions, refinements and adaptations of the original
techniques are being published at a number of workshops and conferences; advanced degrees are
being conferred to graduate students who have chosen signcryption as their
research foci; new applications are being developed to take advantage of
benefits afforded by signcryption.
To better serve
the community of researchers and practitioners who are interested in the
technology, I have established this web portal for all information related to
I hope that you find this portal useful.
Your feedback on the web site is important for
its accuracy, completeness and relevance.
I welcome your comments and suggestions.
