Cryptology is an area of study and research which has numerous applications especially in the area of information and communication technology. The International Cryptology Conference 2010 (Cryptology2010) is one of the many steps towards enhancing and realizing research and applications of cryptology in Malaysia through research collaboration and discussion with research counterparts from the international arena. This is an open forum, provided for contributions which cover research on the theoretical foundations, applications and any related issues in cryptology, information security and other underlying technologies.

This will be the second International Cryptology Conference organized by the Malaysian Society for Cryptology Research (MSCR). The 1st International Cryptology Workshop and Conference was held in 2008 (Cryptology2008) following the success of the 1st and 2nd National Cryptology Conference in 2004 and 2006 (NCC04 and NCC06) which were organized by the Institute for Mathematical Research (INSPEM), Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM); and also the establishment of the Malaysian Society for Cryptology Research (MSCR) in 2007. Cryptology2008 involved 4 parties namely the Institute for Mathematical Research (INSPEM), Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM), the School of Mathematical Sciences, Faculty of Science and Technology, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM), CyberSecurity Malaysia and MSCR.


In 2010, Cryptology2010 is jointly organized by Univeristi Teknikal Malaysia Melaka (UTeM), MSCR, Institute for Mathematical Research (INSPEM), Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM), Center for Advance Software Engineering (CASE),Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM). It will be held at The Historical City of Malaysia-Malacca; which was recently declared by UNESCO as a World Heritage City. Internationally renowned cryptographic figures will be invited to give keynote speeches for the benefit of all participants.

This conference seeks submissions from the academia and industry presenting research on theoretical and practical aspects of cryptology. We also encourage submissions from other communities such as public agencies, defense and business sectors that represent these communities perspectives on issues related to security.
