Cyber Florida to Host NCAE Cyber Games Finals

Cyber Florida at the University of South Florida is proud to host the national championship round of the NCAE Cyber Games on April 22 on the University of South Florida-Tampa campus.

Funded by a grant from the National Security Agency’s National Centers of Academic Excellence in Cybersecurity (NCAE-C) program, NCAE Cyber Games is dedicated to inspiring college students to enter the exciting (and sometimes profitable!) realm of cyber competitions. Cyber competitions are a valuable addition to any college student’s resume, but they can be intimidating for first-timers. NCAE Cyber Games is creating a new style of collegiate cybersecurity competition for college students who have never competed before, where they can learn about cyber competitions in an environment focused on teamwork, building confidence, and growing their skills.

Now in its second year, the program has grown from about 500 competitors from 50 colleges and universities to 700+ competitors from more than 80 colleges and universities out of approximately 350 NCAE-C institutions.

Cyber Florida will host roughly 12o competitors from 11 regional winning teams to face off in a day-long competition to determine the Year 2 National Champions! The University of South Florida eSports crew will broadcast live the second half of the day on

Fast Practical Lattice Reduction through Iterated Compression

April 24, 2023, 11:00 a.m.

Speaker: Ryan Keegan (University of California, San Diego).
Keegan Ryan is a 4th year PhD student advised by Prof. Nadia Heninger at the University of California, San Diego. His research interests include practical cryptanalysis of real-world systems, particularly problems involving lattice reduction.

Abstract: We introduce a new lattice basis reduction algorithm with approximation guarantees analogous to the LLL algorithm and practical performance that far exceeds the current state of the art. We achieve these results by iteratively applying precision management techniques within a recursive algorithm structure and show the stability of this approach. We analyze the asymptotic behavior of our algorithm, and show that the heuristic running time is O(nω(C+n)1+ε) for lattices of dimension n, ω∈ (2,3] bounding the cost of size reduction, matrix multiplication, and QR factorization, and C bounding the log of the condition number of the input basis B. This yields a running time of O(nω(p + n)1+ε) for precision p=O(log|B|max) in common applications. Our algorithm is fully practical, and we have published our implementation. We experimentally validate our heuristic, give extensive benchmarks against numerous classes of cryptographic lattices, and show that our algorithm significantly outperforms existing implementations.
