Willy Quach: Laconic Function Evaluation and Applications Friday, October 5, 2018  10:30am to 12:00pm Abstract: We introduce a new cryptographic primitive called laconic function 

Aikaterini Sotiraki: PPPCompleteness with Connections to Cryptography Friday, September 28, 2018  10:30am to 12:00pm Abstract: PPP is an important subclass of TFNP with profound connections to the complexity of the fundamental cryptographic primitives: collisionresistant hash functions and oneway permutations. In contrast to most of the other subclasses

Ran Cohen: Must the Communication Graph of MPC Protocols be an Expander? Friday, May 18, 2018  10:30am to 12:00pm Abstract: Secure multiparty computation (MPC) on incomplete communication networks has been studied within two primary models: (1) Where a partial network is fixed a priori, and thus corruptions can occur dependent on its structure, and (2) Where edges in the 

Kevin Fu: Physics of Cybersecurity: Sensors, Acoustics, Cuba Friday, May 11, 2018  10:30am to 12:00pm Abstract: Medical devices, autonomous vehicles, and the Internet of Things depend on the integrity and availability of trustworthy data from sensors to make safetycritical, automated decisions. 

Adi Shamir: Towards Quantitative Analysis of Cyber Security Friday, April 27, 2018  10:30am to 12:00pm ABSTRACT: Cyber security had become an extremely hot topic in the last few years, but almost all the research results published so far had been qualitative in nature: they do not formulate a precise mathematical model of the problem, do not numerically compare
