"Sexual harassment at the university concerns us all: If you get too close, you go too far!"
The new INFOPORTAL on sexual harassment and sexual violence provides comprehensive information and services for all students and staff. Sexual harassment is still a taboo subject about which there is still a lot of ignorance. In the portal you will find answers to questions such as: What is sexual harassment? Where can those affected get support? How can you react? What responsibilities do managers have? What can people who perceive sexual harassment in their environment do?

New Techniques for Efficient Isogeny-based Encryption Protocols
February 8th, 2024 | 1:30 - 2:30 pm | IFEG042
Abstract: Isogeny-based cryptography is known for its low bandwidth requirements, which often come at the cost of slower computations. SIDH, one of the most well-known isogeny-based key exchanges, and the only one submitted to the NIST standardisation process, was broken in 2022 in a series of three breakthrough papers. The attack relies on isogenies between abelian varieties (a generalisation of elliptic curves to higher dimensions), and it leads to a complete key recovery within seconds.
