This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 7th International Conference on the Theory and Application of Cryptographic Techniques in Africa, AFRICA CRYPT 2014, held in Marrakesh, Morocco in May 2014. The 26 papers presented together with 1 invited talk were carefully reviewed and selected from 83 submissions. The aim of Africa crypt 2014 is to provide an international forum for practitioners and researchers from industry, academia and government from all over the world for a wide ranging discussion of all forms of cryptography and its applications as follows: Public-Key Cryptography, Hash Functions, Secret-Key Cryptanalysis, Number Theory, Hardware Implementation, Protocols and Lattice-based Cryptography.Abbreviations in the table: me = multi-exponentiation, se = single-exponentiation, gmc = group membership check, el = group element. Scheme ... The public key in our KEMs is one group element shorter. ... The codes in  neither speed up multi -exponentiation nor use Legendre symbol for group membership check.
