July 25, 2023


Matthew Scholl - NIST
Luís T. A. N. Brandão - NIST/Strativia


Abstract. Welcome to STPPA#6: the 6th event of the Special Topics on Privacy and Public Auditability (STPPA)! The event has the them "Community Efforts on Advanced Cryptographic Techniques", and it includes invited talks about various efforts (such as by HomomorphicEncryption, MPC Alliance, ZKProof, ETSI, CFRG and ISO/IEC) for standardization or development of reference material about advanced cryptographic techniques (such as FHE, MPC, ZKP, ABE, PAKE and threshold cryptography).This introductory session includes two parts:

  1. Welcoming from the Chief of the Computer security Division, including some words about the NIST-ITL context and interest in emerging privacy-enhancing cryptography.
  2. A brief introduction of the STPPA series context, in the scope of the NIST project on privacy-enhancing cryptography (PEC), and more specific notes about the STPPA6 event, including the alignment of its topics with the upcoming NIST First Call for Multi-Party Threshold Schemes.
