Title: Vignettes of Cryptography
Prof. Manoj Prabhakaran, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Date & Time: January 11, 2016 09:30
Venue: Conference Room, C Block, 01st Floor, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Kanwal Rekhi (KReSIT) Building
Modern cryptography is a fascinating area that has had a tremendous impact on the theory and practice of computer science. In this talk, I shall try to convey the flavour of research in theoretical cryptography through a whirlwind tour -- biased by own research interests -- that touches upon various aspects: Modern cryptographic primitives (beyond encryption and authentication), formal definitions and proofs of security, proofs of impossibility, connections to complexity theory and information theory, and the potential for new practical systems.
