The NATO Advanced Research Workshop on Enhancing Cryptographic Primitives with Techniques from Error Correcting Codes has been organized in Veliko Tarnovo, Bulgaria, on October 6-9, 2008 by the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences in cooperation with COSIC, KU Leuven and in the framework of the NATO Science for Peace and Security program. Goal of the organizers was to gather international experts from both fields - coding theory and cryptography - in order to exchange ideas, define new challenges and open problems for future research. These proceedings present the state-of-the-art in the current research on cryptography applying techniques and results from coding theory. Enhancing Cryptographic Primitives with Techniques from Error Correcting Codes is divided into two parts. In the first part the papers based on the lectures of the invited speakers, and in the second part the papers based on the talks of the participants in the workshop are included.
