BACTAC - Black

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

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.
