BACTAC - Black

ECOT 831

Cryptography: Design and Applications
Assistant Professor, Department of Computer Science
John Black photo

This talk will review John Black's recent accomplishments in the area of designing cryptographic primitives and first-level protocols such as MACs, authenticated-encryption, and cryptographic hash functions. We will then look at some of the speaker's recent interests involving applications of cryptography to various security problems such as ARP cache poisoning and DDoS prevention. Finally, some new topics of interest will be discussed, including ideas for applying cryptography to a few unusual problem domains.

Please note that this will be very similar to the talk given to the SERL group on 9/23/2002.
Students who attended that talk may find this one a bit repetitive.

BACTAC, the Beverage And Chips Tuesday Afternoon Colloquium, is a weekly forum run by graduate students. The goal is provide an informal setting in which anyone can (basically) present anything. In the past, we have had practice talks for conferences and job interviews, research reports, juggle lessons (!), student representative reports, internship discussions, an introduction to ergonomics, and "pay attention to this when you are going to look for job" discussions.

BACTAC is meant to be an informal and social event to promote the interaction among graduate students. BACTAC is typically held every Tuesday, at 3:30pm, in room ECOT 831. Free munchies and drinks are provided.

Please email Caleb Phillips for more information or if you want to be a speaker.
