This talk, part of an ongoing collaboration with the Hariri Institute of Computing, is aimed at a non-technological academic audience that is interested in understanding the concept of data encryption, with its many facets. Prof. Ran Canetti, the Director of the Center for Reliable Information Systems and Cyber Security (RISCS), will be covering: - The main mathematical and algorithmic concepts surrounding encryption, including confidentiality, privacy, authenticity, repudiability, verifiability, and provability - Some basic techniques, their power and limitations - Modern forms of encryption that open the door to completely new forms of protected interaction between mutually distrustful entities Throughout the talk Prof. Canetti will also discuss the legal and public-policy aspects of the concept and the technology. Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP to Tyler Gabrielski at tgabs@bu.edu.
