Orr Dunkelman, University of Haifa, Israel – Can Lightweight Cryptography Deliver Heavyweight Security?
Daniel Genkin, Technion, Israel – Physical Side Channel Attacks on Mobile Devices
Shay Gueron, University of Haifa, Israel  – optimized hardware implementation of AES – from high performance to Lightweight designs
Orhun Kara, Tubitak, Turkey – The security of lightweight algorithms
Lightweight cryptography is an emerging field of research trying to address low-end devices that need security such as RFID tags or devices connected to Internet of Things (IoT). As known security solutions cannot be accommodated in these restricted environments, lightweight cryptography has to offer meaningful security at the same time as reducing the cost of implementation to its bare essentials: footprint-wise (low number of gates), throughput-wise, energy-wise, etc.

The day is planned as a meeting point between academia and industry, as this field is closely connected to both communities – industry by identifying the exact needs and the requirements, followed by the academic solution development – new designs as well as new design philosophies, which are then implemented by the industry.

Last year, NIST – the US National Institute of Standard and Technology has announced their long term plan in the field (this announcement was also given in the lightweight crypto day held last year). The brings a third and very valuable player to the table – government (and regulatory) bodies.
