Cryptography science is growing fast, and new ‘stronger’ algorithms are competing their way up for standardization. More specifically, the Competition for Authenticated Encryption: Security, Applicability, and Robustness (CAESAR) is currently sorting out the next true candidates for symmetric encryption. In this talk, a first quick look at common AES implementation failures that highlight the gap between “Encryption” and the need of “Authenticated Encryption”. Then, a deep dive into one of the most popular AEAD algorithm in use today will raise some legitimate questions about its longevity. Finally, a selection of new algorithms submitted to the CAESAR competition will be presented in detail. At the light of this talk, the participant should understand the need of AEAD, what it has to offer and what are the next-generation candidates.
