This volume contains the proceedings of the 13th International Conference on Financial Cryptography and Data Security, held at the Accra Beach Hotel and Resort, Barbados, February 23–26, 2009. Financial Cryptography and Data Security (FC) is a well-established int- national forum for research, advanced development, education, exploration and debate regarding information assurance in the context of ?nance and commerce. The conference covers all aspects of securing transactions and systems. The goal of FC is to bring security and cryptography researchers and pr- titioners together with economists, bankers, and policy makers. This year, we assembled a vibrant program featuring 21 peer-reviewed research paper pres- tations, two panels (on the economics of information security and on authen- cation), and a keynote address by David Dagon. Despite a proliferation of security and cryptography venues, FC continues to receive a large number of high-quality submissions. This year, we received 91 submissions(75full-lengthpapers,15shortpapersand1panel).Eachsubmission was reviewed by at least three reviewers. Following a rigorous selection, ranking and discussion process, the Program Committee accepted 20 full-length papers, 1 short paper and 1 panel. The overall acceptance rate was 24%.

Submissions co-authored by members of the Program Committee were assigned to at least four committee members. Due to thelargenumber ofhigh-qualitysubmissions,thereviewprocesswaschallenging andwearedeeplygratefulto the committeemembersandthe externalreviewers for their outstanding work. After meticulous deliberation, the Program C- mittee, which was chaired by Michel Abdalla and David Pointcheval, selected 32 submissions for presentation in the academic track and these are the articles that are included in this volume. Additionally, a few other submissions were selected for presentation in the non-archival industrial track. The best student paper was awarded to Ayman Jarrous for his paper “Secure Hamming Distance Based Computation and Its Applications,” co-authoredwith Benny Pinkas. The review process was run using the iChair software, written by Thomas Baigneres and Matthieu Finiasz from EPFL, LASEC, Switzerland and we are indebted to them for letting us use their software. The programalso included four invited talks in addition to the academicand industrial tracks.
