The book in front of you contains the proceedings of SAC 2008, the 15th - nual Workshop on Selected Areas in Cryptography. SAC 2008 took place during August 14-15 at Mount Allison University, Sackville, New Brunswick, Canada. This was the ?rst time that SAC was hosted in New Brunswick, and the second time in an Atlantic Canadian province. Previous SAC workshops were held at Queen's University in Kingston (1994, 1996, 1998, 1999, and 2005), at Carleton University in Ottawa (1995, 1997, 2003), at the University of Waterloo (2000, 2004), at the Fields Institute in Toronto (2001), at Memorial University of N- foundland at St. John's (2002), at Concordia University in Montreal (2006) and at the University of Ottawa (2007). The intent ofthe workshopseriesis to provide a relaxedatmospherein which researchers in cryptography can present and discuss new work on selected areas of current interest. The SAC workshop series has ?rmly established itself as an international forum for intellectual exchange in cryptological research.
