Professor Kenny Paterson from the ISG was one of the invited keynote speakers at the 9th edition of EuroPKI which took place in Pisa, Italy on September 13th and 14th 2012. The workshop, which is associated with the premier annual European security conference ESORICS, deals with all aspects of research in Public Key Infrastructures. Kenny's talk, entitled 'Key Reuse in Public Key Cryptography: Theory and Practice' covered a range of issues in key management and cryptographic security arising from the common practice of using public keys in multiple algorithms. In this talk, Kenny reported on his recent research on the security of key reuse in EMV, the global de facto standard for payment cards.
