About these proceedings
This volume contains the proceedings of ASIACRYPT '91, the
first international conference on the theory and application
of cryptology to be held in the Asian area. It was held at
Fujiyoshida, near Mount Fuji in Japan, in November 1991.
The conference was modeled after the very successful CRYTO
and EUROCRYPT series of conferences sponsored by the
International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR).
The IACR and the Institute of Electronics, Information and
Communication Engineers were sponsors for ASIACRYPT '91.
The papers from the conference were improved and corrected
for inclusion in this volume. The papers are grouped into
parts on: differential cryptanalysis and DES-like
cryptosystems; hashing and signature schemes; secret
sharing, threshold, and authenticationcodes; block ciphers
- foundations and analysis; cryptanalysis and new ciphers;
proof systems and interactive protocols; public key ciphers
- foundations and analysis. Also included are four invited
lectures and impromptu talks from the rump session.
