The Oberwolfach workshop Cryptography brought together scientists from cryptography with mathematicians specializing in the algorithmic problems underlying cryptographic security. The goal of the workshop was to stimulate interaction and collaboration that enables a holistic approach to designing cryptography from the mathematical foundations to practical applications. The workshop covered basic computational problems such as factoring and computing discrete logarithms and short vectors. It addressed fundamental research results leading to innovative cryptography for protecting security and privacy in cloud applications. It also covered some practical applications.
