Cryptography and Communications Discrete Structures, Boolean Functions and Sequences (CCDS) publishes high-quality papers discussing cryptography, error correcting codes, communications and their interactions. The journal provides a forum for the research communities of these domains, and covers all the fundamental and computational aspects of these fields.

The journal publishes both theoretical and applied papers. The central topics of the journal include discrete structures used in stream and block ciphers in symmetric cryptography; code division multiple access in communications; and the random number generation for statistics, cryptography and numerical methods.

  • Gathers varied research areas in Boolean Functions, Sequences Discrete Structures and uniquely ties them together for a publishing venue that bridges coding, cryptography, and communications
  • Offers an outlet for specialized work in information theory beyond the traditional broad topical areas of other journals
  • Supplies a medium for dealing with discrete structures used in cryptography applications
