The need for privacy and security is one of the most important aspects of present days systems, from the most complex web server to the simplest access card. This type of security systems are based on complex cryptographic systems that may require high computational capacity. While this may not be a problem for the present desktop machines, it can be a very important issue to mobile devices, that have high constrains on the power consumption and a relatively limited performance and complexity.

In this talk, cryptography will be briefly presented and some of the main problems found to implement these algorithms will be discussed, especially for low power embedded systems.
