CryptoBG*2008 Second International Symposium Recent Developments in Cryptography and Information Security
(September 11-13, 2008)

This second year edition of the International Symposium on Recent Developments in Cryptography and Information Security followed the established model to “meet” Theory with Application. The program for 2008 addressed some theoretical foundations and their practical implementations in sensitive information protection and security areas. Special attention was given to payments and finances.
