Scope of This Issue

The purpose of this special issue is to present recent research results on card- based cryptography; card-based protocols enable us to perform cryptographic tasks such as secure multiparty computations using a deck of physical cards. The scope also includes cryptography with everyday objects other than a deck of cards. The call is open to all. A substantially extended version of a conference paper is welcome (as long as the copyright holder grants permission).

We therefore solicit papers on diverse aspects of card-based cryptography as well as cryptography with other everyday objects, such as:

  • Design and analysis of card-based protocols
  • Models of card-based computations
  • Card-based computational complexity
  • Applications of card-based cryptography to education
  • Cryptography with other everyday objects
  • Real-life hands-on cryptography / Recreational cryptography
