A collection of cryptoish systems security papers

I made a collection of academic papers that (1) uses applied cryptography in a novel way, but have not yet become part of the common knowledge; (2) integrates systems design principles; and (3) is application-level, implementable, ideally with a benchmark.

The purpose of the collection is a reading list. Therefore, the list is unfair to old papers. If new papers improve from old papers, or the old papers already become the fundamentals of today cryptography, this collection don't not list them.

This also means that the papers in this page may retire. Once they become part of the common knowledge, they disappear from this list.

The collection is updated mainly from the following conferences:

  • ACM CCS (1993-1994, 1996)

  • USENIX Security (1995-1996, 1998-2003)

  • IEEE S&P (2001-2018, UP TO DATE)

  • NDSS (not started yet)

  • SOSP (not started yet)

  • OSDI (1994, 1996, 1999, 2002)

  • NSDI (2004)
