Abstract. This talk focuses on the latest work on cryptography for use in internet protocols by the Cryptographic Forum Research Group (CFRG), a research group within the Internet Research Task Force (IRTF), a sister organization to the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). The presentation summarizes previously published RFCs by the group and ongoing work on advanced cryptographic techniques such as pairing-friendly curves, threshold encryption, and Password-Authenticated Key Exchanges (PAKEs). This talk emphasizes the practical applications and benefits of these techniques in enhancing security, confidentiality, and integrity in internet protocols. This talk emphasizes the importance of peer-reviewed standards and showcases lessons learned by the CFRG. Attendees will gain insights into the cutting-edge work being done in advanced cryptography for internet protocols and the impact on securing digital communications.
