  • Alkindi cipher challenge: Several members of the project-team are involved in the cipher challenge for high-school students "concours Alkindi" http://www.concours-alkindi.fr/. Matthieu Lequesne organized the challenge and created the scientific content of the competition. He also gave a talk during the final of the cipher challege Alkindi on May 17 at the "Cité des Sciences" in Paris. The 2018 edition of the competition has been launched in December 2017 at Lycée de la Vallée de Chevreuse, Gif-sur-Yvette. Matthieu Lequesne, Sébastien Duval and Yann Rotella gave talks on cryptography during the opening ceremony. The best teams from Académies de Dijon and Orléans-Tours have been visiting the SECRET project-team in June 2017 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EVLHEOWAORc.
