About the Event
The pervasive adoption of cryptography makes it imperative to assess
when proposed solutions are secure, and when they are not. This talk
will explain that proving meaningful security guarantees for practical
cryptography often requires new and deep theoretical advances. I will
showcase three examples from my recent and ongoing research.
