About these proceedings
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 7th International Conference on the Theory and Application of Cryptographic Techniques in Africa, AFRICACRYPT 2014, held in Marrakesh, Morocco in May 2014.
The 26 papers presented together with 1 invited talk were carefully reviewed and selected from 83 submissions.
The aim of Africacrypt 2014 is to provide an international forum for practitioners and researchers from
industry, academia and government from all over the world for a wide ranging discussion of all forms of
cryptography and its applications as follows: Public-Key Cryptography, Hash Functions, Secret-Key Cryptanalysis, Number Theory, Hardware Implementation, Protocols, and Lattice-based Cryptography.
