On Monday, January 20th at 18:30, Haifux will gather to hear a talk by
When Cryptography is not the Answer (even when it is)
Since modern cryptography has emerged in the mid 70's, it developed a
huge set of solutions to many of the security problems: from secure
algorithms for communication, to identification of entities, from
integrity assurance for programs, to methods for evaluating a function
without revealing it.
Despite these advances, even the security challenges that were solved by
cryptography are still affecting our everyday life: from using old and
insecure algorithms, through key management issues, to problems in the
interaction between the cryptography and the system where it resides.
In this talk we shall consider several examples of such issues, of the
gaps between "what is already solved by cryptographers" and "what the
security professionals see as unsolved (if not unsolvable)". We will try
to isolate the sources for such problems, and look for the changes, both
in the technical level and in the perception level, needed from both
sides of the security equation (cryptographers and security
professionals), to overcome these issues in the future.
We meet in Taub building, room 6. For instructions see:
Attendance is free, and you are all invited!
There is nothing scheduled. Do YOU have a lecture to suggest?
We are always interested in hearing your talks and ideas. If you wish to
give a talk, hold a discussion, or just plan some event haifux might be
interested in, please contact us at webmaster at haifux.org
