National Institute of Technology (NIT), Durgapur, National Workshop on Current State of Affairs in Cyber Security & Cryptology (NWCSC), on 13-14 September 2019. Details of the workshop are given below.

Workshop Title: National Workshop on Current State of Affairs in Cyber Security & Cryptology (NWCSC)

Cryptology is the study of information hiding and verification and it is also as specific as modern encryption algorithms used to secure transactions made across digital networks. Cryptology is a technology that can play important roles in addressing certain types of information vulnerability, although it is not sufficient to deal with all threats to information security. In our always online world, cryptography is even more important. Today’s applications run in a very different environment than 10-20 years ago. It is developing rapidly and is popularly increasing day-by- day in information science, particularly in network, banking, email, information security related activities and applications running on smart phones, virtual machines, scripts running on browsers and IOTdevices linking to the cloud. Every organization that handles private information should use up-to- date cryptography techniques to prevent from vulnerabilities and its safeguard. In Cryptology two aspects are more important : (1) First is Engineering aspects : Cryptography is one of the essential technologies used in building a secure VPN. Overall information security is dependent on many factors, including various technical safeguards, trustworthy and capable personnel, high degrees of physical security, competent administrative oversight, and good operational procedures. (2) Second is Computer Science aspects : Computer system security, and its extension Network security & is intended to achieve many purposes. Among them are safeguarding physical assets from damage or destruction and ensuring that resources such as computer time, network connections.
