It has been a real pleasure to have taken part in organizing the 12th Inter- tional Conference on Practice and Theory in Public Key Cryptography (PKC 2009). PKC 2009 was held March 18-20, 2009, on the campus of the Univ- sity of California, Irvine (UCI). As usual, it was sponsored by the International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR) in cooperation with: – UCI Secure Computing and Networking Center (SCONCE) – UCI Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences (DBSICS) – California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (CalIT2) The PKC 2008 Program Committee (PC) consisted of 33 internationally r- ognized researchers with combined expertise covering the entire scope of the conference. Recent growth in the number of cryptography venues has resulted in sti? competition for high-quality papers. Nonetheless, PKC's continued success is evident from both the number and the quality of submissions. PKC 2009 - ceived a total of 112 submissions. They were reviewed by the PC members and a highly quali?ed team of external reviewers. Each submission was refereed by at least three reviewers. After deliberations by the PC, 28 submissions were accepted for presentation. Based on extensive discussions, the PKC 2009 best paper awardwas givento Alexander Mayand MaikeRitzenhofen for their paper “Implicit Factoring: On Polynomial Time Factoring Given Only an Implicit Hint”.Theconferenceprogramalsoincluded twoinvited talks,byAnna Lysy- skaya (Brown University) and Amit Sahai (UCLA).

The 34 revised papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 143 submissions. They are organized in topical sections named: CCA security, functional encryption, identity-based encryption, signatures, cryptanalysis, leakage-resilient and circularly secure encryption, protocols, and primitives.
The two-volume proceedings set LNCS 12710 and 12711 constitutes the proceedings of the 24th IACR International Conference on Practice and Theory of Public Key Cryptography, PKC 2021, which was held online during May 10-13, 2021. The conference was originally planned to take place in Edinburgh, UK, but had to change to an online format due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The 52 papers included in these proceedings were carefully reviewed and selected from 156 submissions. They focus on all aspects of public-key cryptography, covering theory, implementations and applications. This year, post-quantum cryptography, PQC constructions and cryptanalysis received special attention.
