The first Fast Software Encryption workshop was held in Cambridge in December 1993, and followed by two workshops in Leuven in December 1994, and in Cambridge in February 1996. The workshop concentrates on all aspects of fast ciphers, including the design and cryptanalysis of block and stream ciphers, as well as hash functions. The fourth Fast Software Encryption workshop was held from January 20 to January 22, 1997, in Haifa, Israel. The workshop was organized by the Technion, in co-operation with the International Association for Cryptologic Research, and with the support of Microsoft and of Algorithmic Research.
