Still think about participation?
NSUCRYPTO-2019 will be held from October 13 to October 21, 2019.
Read, what other participants write about NSUCRYPTO! Join us!
And have a look on the problems from the previous Olympiads and their solutions.



Mathematical problems occupy a special place in cryptography. It is well-known that mathematical ideas and results often serve as a stimulus for creation of modern cryptographic systems. Here one can mention concepts of public-key cryptography, algebraic foundations of many symmetric ciphers, applications of cryptographic Boolean functions, etc. It is worth mentioning that language of cryptography is rather mathematical.

NSUCRYPTO is the unique cryptographic Olympiad containing scientific mathematical problems for professionals, school and university students from any country. Its aim is to involve young researchers in solving curious and tough scientific problems of modern cryptography. From the very beginning, the concept of the Olympiad was not to focus on solving olympic tasks but on including unsolved research problems at the intersection of mathematics and cryptography. There were more than 1600 participants from 52 countries in the first four Olympiads NSUCRYPTO (2014 - 2018)!

We invite you to participate!
