IACR Opens the Cryptology ePrint Archive

The Cryptology ePrint Archive ( http://eprint.iacr.org ) provides rapid access to recent research in cryptology. Papers can be placed there by the authors and do not undergo any refereeing process other than verifying that the work seems to be within the scope of cryptology.

The Cryptology ePrint Archive replaces the smaller Theory of Cryptology Library , located at http://philby.ucsd.edu , an early preprint server for cryptology started by Oded Goldreich in 1996 and later maintained by Mihir Bellare and Bennet Yee at UCSD. It is planned to integrate the 1996-1999 contents of the Theory of Cryptology Library into the Cryptology ePrint Archive, but has not been done yet (Feb. 2000).

The Cryptology ePrint Archive operates as follows:

Hopefully, this archive will become an important place for the rapid exchange of ideas among researchers in cryptography.
