Historical talks

During the summer program on cryptography, every Monday afternoon there is a talk on the history of a classic paper or series of papers. Last week, Russell Impagliazzo spoke on his work with Steven Rudich on the impossibility of basing one-way permutations or key agreement on the existence of one-way functions. The week before, Umesh Vazirani spoke on quantum computing, and earlier Ron Rivest spoke about the origins of modern cryptography.

All talks are recorded, and the recordings are available here.

Tomorrow afternoon, Daniele Micciancio will speak at 3pm on lattice-based cryptography.

Tomorrow is also the first day of the Workshop on the mathematics of modern cryptography. The program starts at 9:30am Pacific time, and all talk are broadcast live, as usual.
